The hand and wrist are a complex anatomical unit of the body. Many bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles contribute to the active function of this unit. It contributes to aid the sense organs by orienting the body in space and identifying and qualifying acquired objects.
Signs and symptoms of injury are more often observed in the hand and wrist region, but can radiate up into the lower/upper arm and shoulder/neck region.
Signs and symptoms in the hand and wrist can be misleading as the cause may be originating from other parts of the body. For example, the cervical spine and shoulder can directly produce the signs and symptoms in the hand and wrist.
