Thanks for writing to us,

Arthritic wrist is difficuilt to cure.
Intra-articular steroid will give temperary relief .
Arthroscopic repair may give long term relief.

Physiotherapy will help in reducing pain and swelling.
If not relieved then wrist arthrodesis or joint replacement are surgical options.
