WRIST FLEXOR INJURY PREVENTION GUIDE


 

If you have pain on the palm-side of your forearm or wrist, this is a great place to start. The wrist flexors are a group of muscles on the palm-side of the forearm. They are responsible for bending your wrist and fingers down (if the palm is facing down)

 

Pain often occurs when these muscles are irritated. These are some exercises that can help.

Stretches can help to relieve some stiffness and provide temporary relief

Endurance Exercises help to improve the amount of stress the muscles can handle. There are a few other strategies which can help as well!
