The Power of An Elbow From A One Handed Perspective – OHS016

A close up of a man holding his elbow.

How often do you think about how powerful our elbows actually in our lives. If you have lived your life with one hand, you might think differently about the power of an elbow.

The elbow is specific to humans and other primates. The elbow joint is the is the synovial hinge joint between the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna in the forearm which allows the forearm and hand to be moved towards and away from the body.

Who really thinks about how powerful the elbow really is? As a person born with one hand I find myself deeply contemplating the power of an elbow. This is because for me just to have an elbow on the arm that does not have a hand is so much a part of who I am. In many of my professional speaking jobs I talk about how thankful I am for my elbow. I truly believe it is an under appreciated part of the body for most people.

In this Podcast I talk a bit about my perspective, gratitude and love of the power of an elbow.

Show Notes:

  • What does an elbow really do?
  • Do you only think about an elbow when it hurts, is broken, or when you hit your funny bone?
  • Being born without my left and below the elbow has allowed me to truly appreciate how powerful and beneficial is the elbow.
  • What my elbow does for me as a one handed person.
