Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.Injury
to the radial nerve
at the level of the axilla
, upper arm or elbow results in wrist drop
You have not mentioned about the cause for your wrist drop. Because the management approach differs with the etiology (cause).
Generally in any case of wrist drop (irrespective of the cause), all the small joints of the hand are put through a full range of passive movements inorder to avoid contractures
The wrist joint is splinted in extension (Dynamic cockup splint).
If recovery does not occur over a period of time, then "tendon transfer" surgeries is the only remaining option.
Hope this helps
