wrist exercises for pain

In today’s world of texting and laptops, it’s no wonder so many people have pain in their hands and wrists. Pilates to the rescue! Here are efficient & effective Pilates exercises to incorporate into your weekly routine to help prevent wrist pain & injury.

Our wrists and hands are constantly working; whether it’s during Pilates getting into Long Stretch or push-ups, or typing on a computer, smartphone scrolling, or even gripping a steering wheel.

Since our wrists & hands are made of dozens of small bones, they can easily get sore or injured.

The wrist alone has eight bones lined up, four on top, four below. All eight bones are connected by ligaments that keep the joints together, while giving a wide range of motion for our hands. There are also many tendons that pass the wrist. These control the motion of our wrist, fingers, and thumb. Because each of those parts serves a purpose in movement, if even one area in the wrist gets inflamed or injured, you’re going to feel it. – read the full article on Beaumont here.
