Maybe you’re recovering from a sprain or a strain. Or maybe you have to stop and shake your wrists out whenever you do push-ups. Or maybe your wrists are screaming from the hours you spend at your computer.
First of all, because you need your wrists for many normal, necessary daily activities. And second, it’s hard to keep your upper body strong without pushing movements that load your arms and shoulders through your wrists – the very movements that can be excruciating with wrist pain! Whatever the cause, wrist pain can be a serious problem.
Many people with wrist trouble think they only have two options: wait it out or see a professional (and you should see a professional if your problem doesn’t improve).
In this article, I’ll show you a third option: how to actively fix your wrists using a series of exercises that only take a few minutes every day.
A Very Brief Overview of How the Wrist Works
Here’s a little refresher on wrist anatomy to help you understand what’s going wrong and how to fix it.
There are ten bones connected to the wrist joint. You’ve got the two coming in from your forearm (the radius on the thumb side and the ulna on the pinky side), and then eight coming in from the hand, which are called carpals.
The bones and ligaments are supportive structures of course. But just as in anything, if they are not acclimated to the forces of vigorous, repetitive training, they will lack the resilience to withstand injury. As such, ligament sprain and bone stress fractures are common problems.
Improving the capacity of our wrist bones and ligaments takes consistent, progressive, and patient work. And if you want to reduce your risk of injuries, the patience part is key.
The muscles of our forearms and wrists create the movements of flexion, extension, and radial/ulnar deviation. Hand rotations (supination and pronation) actually come from the elbow joints. So wrist “circle” exercises are a combination of elbow and wrist movements.
Our forearm and hand muscles actually have a great potential for strength improvement, as again most of us tend not to use them to their full capability.
Steady incremental strength training for the wrists can lead to significant results.
Use This Simple Device to Strengthen Your Wrist
If your wrists are hurting you, you’re probably painfully aware of how much you depend on them. Sore wrists can make fun hand balancing moves look completely unreachable. Even a simple Push-Up might seem out reach.
Forceball is a revolutionary isometric exercise creates massive wrist strength while shortening wrist rehab times dramatically. Forceball is the perfect wrist rehabilitation aid ideal for the recovery from repetitive strain injuries (RSI), wrist breaks, wrist fracture rehab & sprains and general wrist strengthening.
How does it works?
Forceball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Forceball has a rotor (green wheel) which spins on its axis creating resistance against the user. This resistance is created by the rotor as you turn your wrists which is known as gyroscopic precision (feels like gravity working against you). The faster the rotor spins the more resistance there is against the user. This resistance is purely isometric which is ideal for rehabilitation.
Why Forceball for wrist pain treatment?
- Forceball is highly efficient at exercising the wrist flexor & Extensor muscles.
- 100% Non-Impact Isometric exercise – Perfect for rehabilitation & wrist pain relief
- Gentle recovery for damaged muscles, bones & tendons.
- Increases oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the wrist & connecting tendons – aides recovery
- Cures & prevents repetitive strain injuries RSIs
- Builds wrist strength, flexibility & reduces inflammation
- Stops muscle wastage while in recovery
TENDINITIS IN THE HAND? PROBLEM SOLVED.
I work in a dialysis clinic, one of my tasks is cleaning and changing the filters patients use to filter their blood and that consists of a lot of accurate wrist movements from left to right and right to left many times. Around 7 years ago after long years of performing the same task I developed a severe tendinitis and a cyst in my right hand I had surgery to remove the cyst but after that I couldn’t go back to my job. I went to a lot of doctors for rehabilitation but none of them could help me to get back to work. My son insisted very persistently to try his “plastic ball” – that he had read it’s good for tendinitis. To be honest I was really skeptical about this little ball that glowed blue and was purchased online somewhere in Europe.
One day I thought what can I lose and told my son “teach me how to use it”. Those were the wisest words I’ve said in a long time – I couldn’t let go this little ball. It took me just 4 weeks of using Forceball to get better and return to work. I’ve been using Forceball from that day regularly and I haven’t had tendinitis again. I’m so very grateful and always tell everybody about how I got better. Thanks for giving me my wrist back, I really appreciate that and hope you like my little story.
