The elbow and wrist are closely related joints and problems with one will often create problems with the other. A classic example of this would be a limited range of motion in the wrist. At first glance, when the wrist is not moving through its full range of motion, most people assume that something is wrong with the wrist joint which is limiting it’s movement.
A joint is simply a point at which two or or more bones come together and articulate or move. The bones in your lower arm join at the elbow joint and at the wrist joint. So if either one of those bones is out of alignment at the elbow joint it will not be moving correctly. This lack of motion in this single bone in your lower arm will then transfer a lack of motion to the wrist. So lack of motion in the wrist can come from a misalignment of the bones and joint in the elbow.
