Overcoming a TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) injury of the wrist as a practicing Podiatrist

    Hi all! I would be extremely grateful if anyone has any knowledge of a Podiatrist colleague suffering from an injury or tear of the TFCC of their dominant wrist? I have been unable to work now for 7 months & am growing increasingly frustrated with my Orthopaedic Hand Specialist who keeps sending me back for hand therapy after cortisone injections & an immobilising cast. I feel he has no idea how much strength a Pod requires in their hands plus manual dexterity to perform general Podiatry! My pain is present from just day to day tasks so I feel grim as to how I will ever be able to return to work as a General Podiatrist. My specialty has always been in my hands with a scalpel & fine motor control for subungual hd's & oc's etc. Please if anyone can help, I would be eternally grateful even from an Income Protection Insurance perspective. Thank you, Debbie

    Thats a tough one. Good luck with it.
    When you say "sending me back for hand therapy ", is that a specialist physiotherapist?
     
  4. No an Occupational Therapist who only works with hands & arms. Thanks for the well wishes!
