Hand and Wrist

Our hands are a vital part of our daily activity and comprised of a variety of bones, muscles and ligaments, allowing for a large amount of movement and dexterity. The wrist is a complex joint comprised of many bones and is what allows us to move our hand from side-to-side and up-and-down. It also lets us rotate our hand palm up-or-down.

Elbow

Our elbow is a complicated mechanism, made up of several bones, muscles and ligaments, all working together to provide an incredible range of motion and stability. The elbow operates as a hinge joint, allowing the arm to bend and straighten. It also acts as a swivel joint which allows the arm to twist. The variety of movement of these two joints allows us to reach, grasp, and turn our arms.
