• Posterior interosseous nerve entrapment (as a result of irritation of the supinator muscle)
• Golfer’s elbow (pronator teres tendinopathy)
• Arthritis of the 1st CMC joint
• Scapho-lunate Dissociation
• Lunotriquetral (LT) Dissociation
• Scaphoid Fractures
• Distal Radioulnar Joint (DRUJ) Instability
• TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) Tear
• De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
