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,
How are you?  Although there is no complete cure for Kienbock's disease, the goals of treatment are to relieve the pressure on the lunate and to try to restore blood flow within the bone. Surgical options such as what you had, proximal row carpectomy, may help especially if the lunate is severely collapsed or broken into pieces. While it is advised that patients should not expect to ever return to normal wrist function after any treatment, this will definitely help in long-term preservation of function and relief. Also, each patient's response to treatment depends on the degree of damage to the lunate and surrounding wrist bones. For proper evaluation, it is best that you discuss this with your doctor or have a referral to a rehabilitation medicine physician for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
