Help for Your Hands

If you work your hands during regular sports or gym activities, try these simple suggestions to prevent injury to your hands and wrists

If you work your hands during regular sports or gym activities, try these simple suggestions to prevent injury to your hands and wrists.

  • Warm up your hands prior to a workout. Spread hands and fingers wide open and then curl into a fist. Repeat five times. Circle wrists five times in one direction and then five times the other way. These easy movements help reduce muscle strain and keep hands and wrists moving freely.

  • Treat hands and wrists like any other muscle group and properly strengthen them and prepare them for exercise or play.

  • If you have a sustained hand or wrist concern, contact a specialist for proper care.
