Hello,
Few months back, finally after 2 surgeries (for necrosis of lunate bone) it was discovered that I was born without cartilage in my right hand wrist joint. Now I am wearing a brace to restrict any movement in the wrist . The doctor says that the only solution to this condition is keep wearing the brace (forever) or getting a total wrist fusion.
Has anyone been through this problem. If someone can suggest me some alternative treatment it would be really helpful.
Regards

Medical professionals say that the most common disorder associated with hip pain is osteoarthritis, although other forms of arthritis can be culprits as well, including rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis and gouty arthritis. Acute hip pain usually occurs as a result of an injury. Related inputs here: http://www.depuysettlements.com

Many wrist injuries, such as fractures and sprains, heal fairly easily. However, they can lead to problems much later in life. The injury changes the anatomy of the wrist just enough so that the parts no longer work smoothly together. The changes from the injury cause a lot of wear and tear on the wrist joint. Over time, this wear and tear degenerates the tissues of the joint, leading to wrist osteoarthritis. Doctors may also call this type of degeneration posttraumatic arthritis.
