wrist injury

A radiocarpal joint works as a link between a forearm and a wrist, and in such a function it copes with different volumes of pressure on daily basis ensuring all movements of our arms.

Besides all sorts of injuries, a radiocarpal joint, due to its anatomy structure, is highly susceptible to inflammatory diseases. Those lead to conditions that limit a patient’s working capacity and considerably reduce quality of their life. That is why if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • skin redness over the joint
  • stiffness of movements in the joint
  • pain after normal activity or during idle time
  • swelling of soft tissues around the joint

you need to urgently see a traumatologist. And you can do this at The Rudenko Clinic in Zaporizhia.
