Joints of the Upper Limbs

by James Pickering, PhD

The joints of the upper limbs are integral for medical student education, encompassing a detailed exploration of key articulations crucial for understanding upper limb anatomy and function. This includes the sternoclavicular joint, acromioclavicular joint, and glenohumeral joint, pivotal for shoulder stability and movement. The elbow joint, with its complex interactions between the humerus, radius, and ulna, is thoroughly examined for its role in forearm motion. The radioulnar joint contributes to the forearm's rotational capabilities, while the intricate joints of the hand and digits are essential for fine motor skills. Mastery of these joints is paramount for clinical applications and a comprehensive understanding of musculoskeletal dynamics, forming a critical component of the USMLE examination for aspiring medical professionals.
