These are great stretches if you sit at a computer all day as we can develop tension in the wrists and forearm muscles.

Follow the positions in the pictures. Remember to do both arms.

If you experience pain or discomfort during these exercises it is important to stop and seek further advice from KiropraktorCentrum.




Proper Stretching Technique:

  • Perform balanced stretching. This means you should always stretch the muscles on both sides of your body evenly. Don't stretch one side more than the other side.
  • Always hold a stretch for 30 seconds.
  • Avoid over-stretching. Never stretch to the point of pain or discomfort. You will feel slight tension or a pull on the muscle at the peak of the stretch.
  • Go slow! Always stretch slowly, smoothly and evenly. Hold the stretch for about thirty seconds and release slowly as well.
  • Never bounce while stretching as this can cause injury as a muscle is pushed beyond its ability.
  • Don’t hold your breath while stretching. Flexibility exercises should be relaxing. Deep, easy and even breathing is the key to relaxation.

If you experience pain or discomfort during these exercises it is important to stop and seek further advice from KiropraktorCentrum.
