The upper extremity involves a chain of linked bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and neuromuscular bundles of the upper limbs. The upper limb involves the digits and thumb, the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, upper arm (humerus) and shoulder joint. The upper limb is the functional link between many bodily movements / activities and our surrounding environment, for example: picking up objects, lifting, pushing, pulling, grasping, holding and transporting objects. The upper limbs are more often involved in fine motor tasks and often require a high degree of accuracy and control between the aforementioned joints.
