Wrist injuries are caused by various reasons and the ligaments are very close to each other, making it difficult to localize the origin of trauma. The treatment for each of wrist injuries is completely different, so an accurate diagnosis must be required in order to get the proper treatment.

  • De Quervain’s tenosynovitis 
  • Intersection syndrome
  • Wartenberg’s syndrome
  • Basal thumb arthritis
