The wrist is a complicated joint made up of the radius and ulna of the forearm and two rows of four small bones called carpals.
The finger joints extend from the carpal bones and each finger is made up of a small bone called a metacarpal (the end of this is the knuckle) and then three phalanges which are the long finger bones (the thumb only has two). Muscles in the forearm activate the fingers by contracting long tendons which run through the wrist and hand. Each hand consists of 27 bones in total which allow for us to manipulate objects with precision and provide us with a large range of motion.
If you have had trauma to your hand or wrist and have a significant loss of movement then please self-refer to be assessed in person
