Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 11, 12, and 13 in your course text and review the NIH web pages Elbow Injuries and Disorders (Links to an external site.)Wrist Injuries and Disorders (Links to an external site.), And Hand Injuries and Disorders (Links to an external site.). Then, watch the Hand Anatomy Animated Tutorial (Links to an external site.) video.
