The type of bones that make up the skeleton of digits. The fingers of the body are known primarily as the bones of the phalanges. The human body has a total of fifty-six phalanges, with three phalanges for each finger and toe, except for two phalanges for the thumb and large toes.


The fingers are usually connected to each other on hinged interphalangeal joints that serve to extend. In many cases, the phalangeal bones are connected to each other.



The Phalanges function

Most Phalanges function is made using digits. These are flexible due to the structure of the phalanges in the way they are – whether by creating tools, grasping things, or creating things that facilitate human love in the long run. The sticks support the basic structure of numbers, creating a closely related structure for the smooth function of the engine and the precision of the numbers.


They are considered “contractors” of the task to which our brain directs them. This is the reason why they are considered to be of paramount importance to the evolutionary process of hominids.

Types of Proximal Phalanges

These are the original bones of the phalanges because it connects the structure forming a number with the limb bones. The shape of the proximal phalanges in humans is wide and has a concave surface close to the hand. It connects the base of the limb with the metacarpophalangeal joint. It is easier to move around the claws and ankles.



Intermediate fingers

As the name suggests, these types of phalanges have an intermediate location and size compared to other phalange bones. They are also not present in every digit. For example, intermediate fingers are not found in the thumbs and big toes, hence it is said that their digital formula is 2. Their position is mainly between proximal and distal phalanges because it is connected to two interphalangeal joints.



Sticks Origin

Because the fingers are an integral part of our skeletal system, they are present in the body with the mesodermal origin and live mainly in nature. The baby has about three hundred and five bones, which have been reduced to only two hundred and six in adulthood because of connections and attachments that arise during growth, from which the fingers are never connected after birth, so they do not reduce their number.



The importance of phalanx phalanges

Normal accidents or injuries that can cause temporary or permanent impairment in these areas. Common injuries of proximal phalanges include fractures associated with joining limbs or moving joint joints. They are most often treated with a plaster Paris bandage in order to obtain stability and restore the original state of bone structures and connections and are treated with screws where it is necessary.


The usual screw-in operations involve the use of anesthetics and painkillers to reduce pain in the damaged area. The area is usually suspended for immobilization until the original alignment of the said bone is fully restored.
