The joints in the hand are joints found at the distal end of the upper limb.
The joints are:
- In the wrist there is the radiocarpal joint between the radius and carpus. Between the carpal bones are the intercarpal articulations and the midcarpal joint.
- The carpometacarpal joint connects the carpal bones to the metacarpus or metacarpal bones which are joined at the intermetacarpal articulations.
- In the fingers, finally, are the metacarpophalangeal joints (including the knuckles) between the metacarpal bones and the phalanges or finger bones which are interconnected by the interphalangeal joints.
