Hand and Upper Extremities

Reaching, grabbing, writing, driving, lifting and waving are all activities that we take for granted. Each of these seemingly simple gestures is possible only because of the versatility and flexibility of the upper extremities. This area of the human body is uniquely complex and includes the joints, bones and muscles of the fingers, hand, wrist, arm, elbow and shoulder.
