The wrist

The wrist consists of:

  • The distal radioulnar joint, which connects the radius and the ulna and enables rotating movements of the hand,
  • the radiocarpal joint, which connects the carpus to the radius and ulnar,
  • the mediocarpal joint, which connects both rows of carpi underneath it.

The individual carpal bones are further connected by joints meaning that the wrist actually consists of more than 10 joints.

Please note that medical indications and treatments change constantly. Sometimes these changes occur more rapidly than I am able to update on my homepage. Some information regarding dosage, prescription and compositions of medications may have changed in the meantime. Reading an internet page cannot replace visiting a doctor - it may be that during an examination and subsequent discussion with your doctor, other information is also communicated as a result of new scientific knowledge.
