  • extensor
  • 6.7 to 9.7 centimetres (2.6 to 3.8 in) in length, the tendon passes through a long and superficial synovial sheath which, passing obliquely from the radial border of the foremarm into the thumb, extends from the proximal border of the extensor retinaculum to the first carpometacarpal joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • While abductor pollicis brevis and adductor pollicis, both attached to the extensor pollicis longus tendon, can extend the thumb's interphalangeal joint to the neutral position, only extensor pollicis longus can achieve full hyperextension at the interphalangeal joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • It also applies an extensor force at the metacarpophalangeal joint together with the extensor pollicis brevis and extends and adducts at the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb. (wikipedia.org)
  • distal
  • Passing through the third tendon compartment, lying in a narrow, oblique groove on the back of the lower end of the radius, it crosses the wrist close to the dorsal midline before turning towards the thumb using Lister's tubercle on the distal end of the radius as a pulley. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is important the joint is reduced as soon as possible, as in the state of dislocation, the blood supply to the joint (or distal anatomy) may be compromised. (wikipedia.org)

  • bones
  • A joint dislocation, also called luxation, occurs when there is an abnormal separation in the joint, where two or more bones meet. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment for joint dislocation is usually by closed reduction, that is, skilled manipulation to return the bones to their normal position. (wikipedia.org)
  • Great and sudden force applied, by either a blow or fall, to the joint can cause the bones in the joint to be displaced or dislocated from normal position. (wikipedia.org)

  • The treatment of sprains depends on the extent of injury and the joint involved. (wikipedia.org)
  • The joint should be exercised again fairly soon, in milder cases from 1 to 3 days after injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • The joint may need to be supported by taping or bracing, helping protect it from re-injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some joints are more at risk of becoming dislocated again after an initial injury. (wikipedia.org)

  • Protect
  • Basic boxing training equipment includes: Hand wraps: Protect the knuckles and wrists when training and sparring. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • Prolonged immobilization delays the healing of a sprain, as it usually leads to muscle atrophy and stiff joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • lock
  • Grabbing just the wrist may lead to the opponent being able to pull it free, while grabbing a couple of fingers, instead or along with the wrist, can greatly reinforce a defender's ability to hold on to a wrist lock completely through execution and control. (wikipedia.org)
