STRETCH OF THE WEEK:
Wrist And Finger Flexor Stretch
The wrist and finger flexor #stretch is an amazingly simple but effective stretch that will relieve tension throughout the the main muscles in your forearms responsible for flexing your wrists as well as each individual finger 2-5. This will help to relax tight and painful hands, elbows, and shoulders.
This is important because tightness within these muscles can cause irritation at the flexor tendon at the medial epicondyle which leads to medial epicondylitis or golfers elbow.
🔈DO THIS STRETCH‼️
1. Start standing or seated upright with your right arm straight out in front of you locking it out and facing your palm forward.
2. Grab the pointer finger of your right hand with your left and gently pull it back and slightly down toward the back of your forearm, until you feel a moderate stretch. (Hold for 2-3s)
3. Now while still holding your pointer finger, grab the middle finger of your right hand as well with your left and gently pull them both back and slightly down toward the back of your forearm, until you feel a moderate stretch. (Hold for 2-3s)
4. Repeat until you are pulling all four fingers back.
5. Now release all fingers, and then pull each individual finger back starting with the pinky. (holding for 2-3s on each)
6. Perform this process twice through on your right hand, and then repeat on your left.
