Hand and Wrist Anatomy, Injuries and Conditions
The hand and wrist are a complicated system of bones — such as the phalanges (finger), metacarpals and carpals (wrist) — muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons.
An injury to one or more parts of this delicate system can significantly compromise hand and wrist dexterity and function, making normal, everyday tasks painful or impossible.
