Initial symptom diagnosis / HAND AND UPPER LIMB

Injury to the Ulnar (Little Finger) Side of Wrist


The ulnar side of wrist is used to twist in order to perform various tasks in daily life. Hence, ligaments and tendons in this part have to hold the bone and joint firmly throughout the movement. This part is therefore prone to be inflamed or injured even from daily use or from minor accidents. If the symptom is not properly diagnosed, it will not be completely resolved.

Conditions which cause the symptoms are:

  • Trifibrocartilage complex injury
  • Extensor carpi ulnaris tendinitis
  • Flexor carpi ulnaris tendinitis
  • Pisiotriquetral arthritis

When to see a doctor

  • Pain occurs more often
  • Pain does not improve after resting or taking pain relievers
  • Pain which interferes with your daily life
