Stretching the wrist flexor muscles can be difficult, but using a wall to apply pressure and increase the range of motion can be very effective. Make sure you keep the elbow straight.

Teaching Points

  • Stand facing a wall with your arms outstretched and palms facing up.  
  • Place your fingers on the wall pointing downwards.  
  • Slowly try to place your whole hand flat on the wall by extending the wrist.
  • Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.

Variations

  • Perform on all fours so that your fingers point to your knees.
  • To increase the stretch, sit further back onto your heels.
