The Importance of Hands
An injury to the hand that leaves the member malformed can be debilitating. Damage to any one of the mechanisms of the hand, such as the tendons, ligaments, or the joints between the bones, can severely hamper someone’s lifestyle and infringe on their career. People use their hands a lot in their day-to-day lives, and use them to interact with and manipulate the world around them. Damage to this mechanism that is left untreated can be not only disruptive but ruinous in its effects.
