Kienbock's disease

Has anyone had experience dealing with Kienbock's disease in relation to building a workout with pushing movements? The wrist had a proximal row carpectomy and now has only 25-30% flexion/extension. I'm kind of stuck on this one and any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there!

Strain on the hand should typically be avoided after avascular necrosis and carpectomy. If there is a way where the strain can be bypassed from the hand directly to the forearm, by use of work-out devices one could go ahead with the physical training.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
