Wrist injuries frequently occur as a result of participating in sporting, recreational, and everyday activities. When we hear of wrist injuries, we often hear of individuals either spraining or fracturing their wrist. A sprain occurs when the ligaments are either stretched beyond normal limits or torn, whereas a fracture occurs when the structure and congruity of the bone or bones is disrupted. One example of a particular wrist injury, which we do not hear much about, is damage to the Triangular Fibrocartilaginous Complex or TFCC.
