The forearm is identified as the portion of the upper extremity positioned between the elbow and wrist joints. Many important anatomical structures are present within the forearm, several of which can be followed from the elbow joint proximally to the wrist joint distally. These include the main nerves of the forearm, as well as the important flexor and extensor muscle groups.
