Numerous joints occur among the bones of the wrist and hand. There is the mobile wrist joint, which occurs between the distal end of the radius and the proximal carpal bones. Between the individual carpal bones there is also a series of less mobile joints, the intercarpal joints. Within each digit there is a carpometacarpal joint between a carpal bone and a metacarpal bone, a metacarpophalangeal joint between a metacarpal bone and a proximal phalanx, and interphalangeal joints between adjacent phalanges.
