  1. 1. ← Flexor TendonInjuries CanPrevent Free Finger Movement PostedbyjefferybudoffOCT4 Scapho-Lunate (SL) Ligament Injuries and Forearm Fractures Scapho-Lunate (SL) Ligament injuries are some serious injuries to the wrist. The SL ligament connects the scaphoid and the lunate bones of the wrist together. This ligament keeps the wrist’s smallbones moving together in a normaland synchronous fashion. Well, when this ligament tears, significant pain is caused and normally it leads to arthritis after about 10-15 years, though sometimes even earlier. Scapho-Lunate ligament injuries tend to occur from either trauma or repetitive overuse. Usually these injuries result in pain on the back of the wrist that gets worse with activities, particularly when pressure is exerted on the extended wrist; for instance, when getting up off the floor, doing a push-up, opening a door or getting out of a pool. Generally, these injuries are likely to resolve with exercises; however, if exercises don’t work, the physician resorts to wrist arthroscopy. Forearm fractures These fractures are generally significant injuries which lead to stiffness, pain, and deformity. In teenagers and adults, forearm fractures may require surgical fixation. The ideal way to fix such fractures is using strong screws and plates. This is a simple outpatient procedure and tends to be very effective. Bone graft may be needed to support healing if the bones appear to be in more than two pieces. Those who are affected by forearm fractures had better seek the help of an expert orthopedic upper extremity surgeon who is well experienced in treating these kinds of fractures.
