Anatomy of the Hand

The hand is composed of many different bones, muscles, and ligaments that allow for a large amount of movement and dexterity. There are three major types of bones in the hand itself, including the following:

  • Phalanges. The 14 bones that are found in the fingers of each hand and also in the toes of each foot. Each finger has three phalanges (the distal, middle, and proximal); the thumb only has two.
  • Metacarpal bones. The five bones that compose the middle part of the hand.
  • Carpal bones. The eight bones that create the wrist. The carpal bones are connected to two bones of the arm--the ulnar bone and the radius bone.
