    The Hand, Wrist, and Elbow

    The hand and wrist together are one of the most intricate parts of the body. Designed for precision and control, the hand positions for accuracy on a desired object. The body works as chain of command. The upper extremity starts with the shoulder as the base of support, the elbow positions the hand towards the desired object, the wrist puts the hand on the object and then the hand closes in. The hand is meant for both motor and sensation recognition. Getting to the item you want is important, but recognizing what something should or does feel like is just as vital. If any part of the chain is injured, the sequence can break down. If you or someone you know is concerned with an elbow, wrist, or hand injury give the team at South Texas Bone & Joint a call. Making your care, our priority.
