Click to enlarge Nearly a quarter of the bones in the human body are located in the hand and wrist. The hand has a very delicate and complex structure. This allows muscles and joints in the hand a great range of movement and precision. The different forces are also distributed in the hand in the best possible way. But the hand is also quite vulnerable: tendons, nerve fibers, blood vessels and very thin bones are all positioned right under the skin and are only protected by a thin layer of muscle and fat. Only the palm is protected by a strong pad of tendons (aponeurosis) for a powerful grip. Our hands are put through quite a lot day in and day out, and are often within range of dangerous tools. This makes hand injuries and problems due to wear and tear very common.
