Hand and wrist injuries are common during sports activities. The estimated incidence of heterogeneous hand and wrist injuries in athletes is about 3% to 9%. Carpal bone fractures, fracture and dislocations, ligament injuries, and thereby resulting carpal instability represent a spectrum of injuries to the wrist both in the acute setting and chronic overuse syndromes. Therefore, the diagnosis and treatment of carpal instability are of utmost importance for the athletes, as this condition may have an adverse effect on the athlete`s future career.
