Clinical Mechanics of the Hand, 3 rd Edition covers all the basic elements of the forces that result in movement of the hand and those that limit or hinder movement. Drs. Brand and Hollister quantify those elements in a practical way so that surgeons and therapists can judge their own measure of success or failure as they try to restore flexibility, strength, sensibility, and beauty to damaged hands. This book covers terminology, theory, how the hand works, and how to surgically treat various conditions of the hand.From the Publisher:
