Remember that the body is an integrated system, so a problem with the wrist can be related to the elbow or the shoulder, upper back and neck, etc.  Be sure to review all segments of this resource, focus on finding improved movement and contact Steve if you need professional guidance.  Click HERE to return to Physical Therapy Menu.

 

Mobility/Flexibility


Two way wrist stretching with a band for distraction. It is important to pay attention to the line of pull of the band and also to keep the “elbow pit” pointing forward and staying in a locked out position. Perform for 60-90 sec for physical change
