PDR Technicians: Exercises For Repetitive Strain Injury In Hands And Wrists Part V
Hopefully you have been following along with all of the exercises for your hand. Now we move on to exercises for your wrists. Without further ado:
Put your hands together as if to be praying. Elbows up and out, lower your hands towards the ground until you feel a good stretch. Hold for five seconds then return to the original position. Do this two or three times and a few times throughout the day.
With your left arm resting on the table and your hand hanging off the table, bend your wrist down until you feel a stretch, hold for five seconds. Return to the starting position and bend wrist up until a stretch is felt and hold for five seconds. Do this for the right arm as well.
With your left arm resting on the table and your hand hanging off the table, slowly turn your hand to the side, hold for five seconds. Repeat this in the other direction and hold for five seconds. Now do the same with the right hand.
Wrist Stretch Exercise:
With your arm out in front of you and your palm facing down, move the wrist from side to side until a good stretch is felt. Hold for a count of ten. Repeat with your other arm.
This is the end of the series of exercises to be done to help you with the pain you may feel at your wrist and hand. If you do these daily, even several times a day, you will begin to feel some relief. It would be best to do these as a preventative exercise but if you are past that point, then jump in. That is, of course, after your physician has approved you doing them. Don’t forget while you are asking if you are clear to take any anti-inflammatory drugs and/or creams.
