Hands

Given the fascinating anatomy, complex biomechanics, and superior functionality of the hand, there are a variety of different disorders and afflictions that can arise.

Dr. Gäbler and the SPORTambulatorium team regularly treat patients with ganglia, scaphoid injuries, and injuries of the TFCC.

Diagnosis can be complex and must always consist of several phases (anamnesis, clinical examination, X-ray, CT, MRI, etc.).

The primary aim of therapy is to treat both cause and symptoms with conservative treatment methods. Surgical treatment should only be considered once other methods have proved unsuccessful or if the course of the disease is particularly severe.

Die menschliche Hand ist ein Wunderwerk. Alleine schon der anatomische Aufbau ist beachtlich. So sind im Bereich des Handgelenkes insgesamt 10 Knochen beteiligt (Speiche, Elle und 8 Handwurzelknochen), die in einer dementsprechenden Vielzahl an Gelenkverbindungen artikulieren.

wrist consists of:

  • The distal radioulnar joint, which connects the radius and the ulna and enables rotating movements of the hand,
  • the radiocarpal joint, which connects the carpus to the radius and ulnar,
  • the mediocarpal joint, which connects both rows of carpi underneath it.

Hands are complex, involving ligaments, a connective tissue disc (discus), tendons, muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. Additionally, the metacarpals are uniquely joined with the carpal bones, thus enabling the fingers to perform their function starting at the very base.

Given the fascinating anatomy, complex biomechanics, and superior functionality of the hand, it is not surprising that there are a variety of different disorders and afflictions that can arise.

Diagnosis can be complex and must always consist of several phases (anamnesis, clinical examination, X-ray, CT, MRI, etc.).
