6 Moves to Manage Wrist Pain

If you’ve ever experienced wrist pain during an exercise, you know it’s no fun and it could even be holding you back from seeing progress if it prevents you from completing your workout!

This basic wrist-focused routine is designed to help you build strength, range of motion and flexibility in the muscles that surround and support your wrists. Try these moves before a workout or on their own up to four times on non-consecutive days each week.

All you’ll need to do these exercises is:

  • a small ball (it should fit in the palm of your hand; a tennis ball is perfect)
  • a resistance band
  • a set of dumbbells (simply to grab, so don’t worry about the weight)
  • exercise mat if you’re on a hard floor (for the final exercise).

Remember, not all exercises are suitable for everyone, so if you are dealing with a specific condition or injury, be sure to check with your doctor or physical therapist before trying this workout. This routine is not meant to diagnose or treat any conditions or symptoms. Be sure to see a qualified specialist for expert treatment if you experience pain on a regular basis.
