TFCC Tear: Explanation, Symptoms, Reasons, Treatment, And Recovery

A small tear may heal on its own, but if a large tear is not treated, it can lead to weakness or instability in your wrist.

Tests & Diagnosis for TFCC Tear
To diagnose a triangular fibrocartilage complex tear, the doctor may:

Conduct a physical examination of the wrist, pressing on various areas to assess for tenderness, swelling, or instability.
Recommend imaging tests like MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), X-ray, or arthroscopy (a minimally invasive procedure using a small camera) to obtain a detailed view of the TFCC and confirm the tear.
