Dislocation is an injury to the joint that is as a place where two or more bones unite or a pull on the two between bones from their normal position. Heavy injuries between bones can damage and paralyze your joints.
There are 8 small bones in the wrist called scaphoid, crescent, triquetrum, pisiform, trapezium, trapesium, cap and crook Carpal instability accounts for about 7% to 10% of all injuries reported on carpal bones.
The majority of carpal instability is centered around the middle of the wrist. Injuries develop sequentially depending on their severity, from scapholunate instability to crescent dislocation. The wrist that is experiencing dislocation is caused by a fall or a history of trauma.
There are several types of wrist dislocations. Among them:
- Anterior lunate dislocation. The lunate bone rotates while the other wrist bones remain in place.
- Perilunate dislocation. This type involves the lunate bone and the three ligaments around it.
- Galeazzi fracture. This type involves a break in your radius bone and dislocation of your radioulnar joint.
- Monteggia fracture. This involves a break in your ulna and dislocation of one of the ends of your radius.

Wrist Dislocation Treatments
Mild dislocations are usually treated with a procedure called a reduction. In this procedure, your doctor gently maneuvers the bones back into their proper positions. This can be quite painful, depending on the severity of your injury. To help with the pain, your doctor will use either local or general anesthesia beforehand.
Following the procedure, you’ll probably need to wear a splint or cast to prevent your wrist from moving while it heals. You might also need to wear a sling.
For more severe cases, you might need surgery to realign your wrist bones or repair torn ligaments. This is sometimes done using pins or screws to hold everything in place.
