Forearm Stretches | Great Daily Stretches
Forearm stretches are really important for anyone doing repetitive work, especially desk workers and people with tendonitis and other repetitive strain injuries. Tension in the forearm flexors and/or extensors can cause micro-tearing, inflammation, and overall weakness in the forearm this leads to ongoing issue as we are unable to do our regular activities.
What Are The Benefits?
- Keep the flexor and extensors muscles balanced -Muscle imbalance can cause joints to sit in awkeward positions which can lead to bigger issues later on.
- Maintain healthy length of muscles and tendons – in order for muscles to be at the strongest it is important that they are at their full length. If the muscles are strong we are less prone to injury.
Our forearm is the part of the arm between the elbow and the wrist. The term forearm differentiates it from the rest of the arm, which describes the entire part of the upper limb. The forearm has two long bones, our radius and our ulna, these bones form the radioulnar joint.
