Hand & Wrist

The Healthy Hand and Wrist

The hand is a complex combination of small bones (phalanges, metacarpals, and carpals), muscles, and tendons. The intricate movements of the hand rely on the proper function of many joints. Here is a brief overview of the properties of a healthy hand and wrist:

  • There are 27 bones in the wrist and hand.
  • These bones are held together by muscles and tendons, each separated by a shock-absorbing layer of smooth articular cartilage.
  • The cartilage allows the bones to roll over each other with little resistance.

Problems of the Hand and Wrist

Common problems experienced in the hand and wrist include:

  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis
  • Ligament sprain or tear
  • Bone fracture from age or injury
  • Swollen or inflamed synovial membrane, the lining of the joints

For patients suffering from these symptons, mesenchymal stem cell injections used in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection may decrease pain and increase joint mobility and function.
