    Has anyone found a way to play tennis with a scapholunate rupture? Mine
    is not that bad(no pain or movement) but dont want to go through surgery
    and take off for over a year. Can hit groundies all day long but no serving
    as I cant help snapping wrist. Tried all the braces out there to no avail. it may be a long summer with no tennis. Any suggestions may be helpful.
    Thanks

    Underhanded serves are not illegal. Just explain to your opponent your medical condition, and everyone would be cool as long as they find your other strokes respectable. And you should also refrain from hitting overheads. Hit a high forehand volley instead, or let it bounce and hit a forehand.

    But whether refraining from those two strokes would sufficiently keep you safe, I haven't a clue.

    I would think playing alot of tennis with an unstable wrist is asking for accelerated development of traumatic arthritis, which could lead to no tennis at all. Perhaps you should have the surgical repair.

    Does this heal by itself?

    Playing tennis with a ruptured anything sounds like a bad idea. Avoiding the correct treatment to avoid time off the sport may likely lead to even more time away or end it for good.
