What is the TFCC ?
Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) is a combination of connective tissues, which connects the radius, ulna, and little finger in a triangular shape. More popularly known as the wrist meniscus. It functions to keep the bones of the wrist in a compact form. The soft fibro-ligament tissue provides cushion and support to the carpal bones and helps to stabilize the arm.
How do you know it's the TFCC?
Symptoms of the TFCC injury include pain at the circumference of the wrist, especially on weight-bearing. Loss of grip and clicking sounds from the wrist can also be due to TFCC injury.
The most accurate way to determine TFCC damage actually is called the Weight Bearing Test. The weight bearing test is a measure of how much weight you are able to pass through your wrist and hand.
Weight Bearing Test can be used to diagnose the triangular fibrocartilage complex tear because TFCC is the only condition that affects the weight-bearing tolerance of the wrist. This test is more reliable to diagnose Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex injury than MRI and radiography and much less expensive.
The Weight Bearing test:
All you need is the non-digital scale (analog scale) and to know the correct method of pressing on the scale. First, you have to press on the scale using your hand up to the edge of pain in the suspected wrist. Then wrap two pieces of non-elastic tape or a Wrist Widget on the same wrist and check the weight tolerance again. If there is a significant increase in the weight-bearing capacity of the wrist, it indicates the injured TFCC of your wrist. Find a more detailed tutorial for weight bearing test here.
If you have a TFCC injury there should be an immediate increase in weight-bearing ability, and your pain should be greatly relieved.

This is not the case for tendonitis, fractures, UT tears, and much more.The Weight Bearing test is reliable, affordable, and specific. - Wendy
How to wear a WristWidget?
The exact placement of the Wrist Widget for a TFCC tear is important. After removing the Wristwidget from its package, wrap the brace around your arm. Pass the straps through the given holes and secure them in such a way that one of the rectangular spaces fits on the ulna (lower ulnar extremity). Remove the tape, covering the look and hoop, and tighten the WristWidget according to your need.
WristWidget equally fits on both left and right wrist. A more secure grip is recommended during strenuous activity and it can be loose during rest or sleep. Just follow the treatment protocol!
For proper healing, you must wait for X-Ray results to rule out a fracture BEFORE beginning the treatment outlined below. If your wrist is fractured, it must be cast so the bones can heal properly first.
The following treatment plan is for wrists without a cast, or after the cast has been removed.
