Hand Muscles

Hand Muscles

Grip it, flex it, hold it!

The hands are a part of many-body systems—nervous, immune, circulatory, and even skeletal. They contain bones, joints, ligaments, and a wide range of muscles that help not only to make hand gestures but also aid in movement from the forearm.

The complex anatomy of the hand makes it prone to a great number of injuries and conditions, much more so than other parts of the body that have fewer muscles packed into smaller areas.

The muscles of the hand are also known as the extrinsic hand muscles. They are responsible for movement in the hands, fingers, wrist, and forearms.
