Wrist Anatomy 101

The wrist consists of dozens of bones and joints, as well as ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves, and cartilage that all work together to perform routine, everyday tasks. The frequency in which we use our wrists makes them prone to injuries, dislocations, and fractures. Repetitive motions while at work or participating in activities can lead to wrist pain, tendinitis, arthritis, or carpal tunnel syndrome.
