    I have a torn lunotriquetral ligament in my right wrist, which is leading to all sorts of wrist instability. Pushups are the worst, holding pads is terrible, shooting a basketball isn't fun, and the injury seems to be radiating up my forearm being that I've developed some pretty harsh elbow tendinitis.....

    I had shoulder surgery in august, and I really don't want to get another one if I don't have to. Besides, by all accounts, the bone fusing, or pinning to help with chronic wrist instability does not have a very high success rate. The hand specialist I saw told me to try and live with it...

    Just wondering if anyone was familiar with prolotherapy for this type of thing..
    It's been around for a long time, but who knows.

    Thanks.

    Sorry to bring a thread back from the dead, but what happened to your ligament tear? I’m dealing with the same ligament, having recently torn it and it hurts quite a lot. I would like to know if it resolves on its own without surgery.
