Without resorting to any outside reference other than your brain, can anyone correctly identify the numbered bones that make up the wrist?

Does anyone have the cajones the take an honest stab at it?

yeah, i agree with those...
curious minds want to know: how DID you get those numbers on the bones? Didn't it hurt?...

(thanks for your work here Alex- great stuff)

Well,
Someone had to do it.
Attention all PT students.
The mnemonic goes a little something like this.
"Some Lovers Try Positions That They Cant Handle."

Why I remember this, I really dont know.

Moving from proximal row, radial side
Scaphoid
Lunate
Triquetrium
Pisiform (now back to radial side distal row)
Trapezium
Trapezoid
Capitate
Hamate

First, I remembered the mnemonic, but mixed up trapezium and trapezoid. Then I cheated so that I would not mislead you all with an improper mnemonic sequence. Detention for me.

The mnemonic that I was taught in school goes like this: "Slowly Lower Tilly's Pants Till Tilly Cries Help"

Any others?

I obviously need to go get my DPT because I was never taught any phrases to remember anything...

Most of the mnemonics I learned was in my anatomy class. Forgot most of them but they do help. A simple anatomy book should have some of them listed.

This is a free medical mnemonics website that is helpful. There are some good mnemonics for various aspects of anatomy plus tons of others.

I also learned the "lovers" mnemonic.
I remember the Trapezoid/Trapezium thing by remembering that the Trapezi-UM is next to the Th-UMB.
For what that's worth...

I have this simple philosophy that if I can't remember something, all I really need to know is where to find that information. If I know where to go to get what I need, that's really all that matters. I guess it's an excuse I have because anatomy kind of sucks taken at face value because it's all memorization and I have never been one to do very well with memorization. In undergrad, I actually decided to have a mathemetics minor just so I could do calculus so I could be challenged by doing something instead of memorizing muscles and bones.

PTs Love Sex, However, Can't Take Time.

From 20+ years ago, and starts with the Pisiform.

Can't believe that stuck in my head, I really need that space for other things...

SJ, I identify with you completely. My biology professor (taught Anatomy) always said "memorize it for the test, you will then forget it, that's what anatomy books are for" Took Anatomy my sophmore year, was a teaching assistant for anatomy labs my junior year, had cadaver labs senior and graduate year, and it still never stuck in my head. Not very good with peoples names either, guess it is just the lazy part of my brain. I am very "visual" so I know exactly what I am working on and what its function is--I just have to look up the name later for documentation! (Same goes for naming special tests--its like who cares what the name is, what am I doing and why am I doing it)I wish I were better at memorizing, but I guess I get along OK.

I am exactly the same way! I'm terrible with history, names of tests, exact years something happened. I don't know that it's "lazy" though. I have the Same philosophy as your biology prof. I need my brain to always remember where I leave things -I cant look that kind of thing up anywhere.

Not so much now because I am in an isolated clinic but in my previous assignments we worked very closely with the orthopaedic surgeons. In fact, the PT clinics are usually co-located with orthpoedics in most military hospitals. I think it is imparative for us as PTs to know our musculoskeletal anatomy in and out especially if you are interacting almost daily with the surgeons. I would argue that we need to know our anatomy as well or even better than the surgeons. It helps when interacting with them and discussing cases with them.

I was with surgeons and whenever they questioned their residents on clinical days and got that "dumb" look, they'd just ask me and I could answer whatever question. The surgeons always have the various diagnostic tests right there in front of them... but, try working along side a family physician... a whole different game. When a family physician pages you to have your impression on a patient, well, all you have is your brain, your communication ability and your hands. And, there is no shame in doing whatever needs to be done in front of the patient, walking out of the room, heading to the physician, saying what you might think is going on while at the same time grabbing some reference book to help visualize the anatomy in question. Which then always leads to a discussion on the probabilities of that theory and how to "test" whatever theory. And then sometimes, the end result is that the patient is headed to the surgeon.
