How To Relieve Your Wrist Discomfort?





We spend a lot of time a day with our wrists being in a flexed position. For example, when we're driving a car, holding a phone, or typing on a computer. This can cause strain and discomfort.


Here are 3 stretches that you can do to help alleviate the discomfort you experience in your wrists:


The Prayer Stretch

  1. Start with your palms together in front of your chest just below your chin.

  2. Slowly lower your hands toward your waistline, keeping your hands close to your stomach and your palms together until you feel a mild to moderate stretch under your forearms.

  3. Hold for at least 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 2 to 4 times.



The Wrist Flexion Stretch


  1. Extend your arm in front of you with your palm up.

  2. Bend your wrist, pointing your hand toward the floor.

  3. With your other hand, gently bend your wrist farther until you feel a mild to moderate stretch in your forearm.

  4. Hold for at least 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 2 to 4 times.


The Wrist Extension Stretch


  1. Extend the arm with the affected wrist in front of you and point your fingers toward the floor.

  2. With your other hand, gently bend your wrist farther until you feel a mild to moderate stretch in your forearm.

  3. Hold the stretch for at least 15 to 30 seconds.

  4. Repeat 2 to 4 times.
