Everyone uses their arms and hands every day and without them most people would agree that our quality of life is completely changed. Without hands one must be re taught how to do everything. The hands and arms are used daily to eat, dress, write, earn a living, create, introduce and etc but to do any of these things the hands require sensation and movement. The arms and hands must have all joint motion tendons gliding, and muscle contraction. When a problem takes place in the hand alone care must be given to all of the types of tissue. Other parts of the arm that could be harmed and would need medical attention would be the wrist and the elbow. The most common reason for having wrist surgery is serious carpal tunnel syndrome or for reconstructive surgery for broken ligaments. Elbow surgery is typically done for elbow tendonitis which is the swelling of the inside or out side of the elbow; this typically happens to golfers, tennis players and baseball players.
