Triangular Fibro-Cartilage Complex (TFCC) injury
On this page:
The TFCC acts as a wrist stabilizer on the ulnar side (little finger side) of your wrist. This structure is commonly injured when your wrist is forced sideways (ulnar deviation). Sometimes the injury may arise from overuse.
The pain will be localized to the outside side of your wrist and may be aggravated by weightbearing, gripping or moving the wrist. There may also be associated clicking at the wrist.
Formal assessment of your wrist should be completed to determine the appropriate management of this injury, however treatment may involve splinting and wrist stability exercises.
Please discuss further with your hand therapist for more information.
