Lunate dislocation

I dislocated my lunate in my left wrist on 31 December doing 2x110kg (242lb) squat clean thrusters on the two minute. There was no fracture. I had surgery on 2 Jan 2014 to have k-wires inserted in my wrist and my carpal tunnel decompressed. The wires were removed late February.

My physio has advised me not to do any pushing movements with my left wrist, though due to good shoulder mobility I believe I coudl get into a front squat position should i try.

Has anyone had this injury (or treated anyone who has) and returned to CF? I understand that there are complications with inflammation or arthritis given the severity of this injury. I am interested if it is advisable for me to olift or compete in CF in the next year or two, or if it is just over for me altogether.

Re: Lunate dislocation

You need to discuss this with your surgeon. Certainly pulling and deadlifting wil be easier than pushing and overhead stabilizing due to the risk of recurrence because of the compressive forces.

Re: Lunate dislocation

Just in case someone comes across this thread...

My name is Paul and I recently suffered a similar injury (perilunate dislocation). I am in the middle of recovery but am posting the research I find and progress on my blog dedicated to the topic of wrist dislocation.

It was really difficult to find information when this happened so this is my attempt to put together some useful and hopeful information.

If you are suffering from this or other serious injury, just look up Zach Krych if you need some inspiration

Mitchell - how is your recovery coming along?
