As a Chiropractor, I use my forearms and wrists a LOT! I am constantly gripping and releasing soft tissue and muscles, moving bodies (no, not the way they do in a horror movie … lol ) and adjusting joints in the body.
When I first started practice (8 years ago – wow!), my forearms would ache at times and I would feel some tension and weakness in my wrist joints. Over the years, I built up strength in my wrists, but just last year, I was finding my forearms were getting more and more tired as I was seeing more people in my practice.
So … what did I do about it?
I got some massage work on my forearms and had my wrists adjusted, but I also started to do a wrist stretching / strengthening routine from my friends at Hybrid Fitness. I was told to do this every day, and I must admit, I likely did it 3 times per week, and it still worked for me!
Check out my video on my version of a wrist routine that worked for me and that I continue to do a few times per week for maintenance.
