With a majority of us working from home these days, it’s no surprise that this sort of pain and tightness is affecting more and more people. When we’re working at a desk or computer for a prolonged period of time in the same position (holding a mouse or typing on your keyboard), we use the muscles and tendons over and over again, tensing them consistently without relaxing or releasing them often enough.
Try this quick and easy desk stretch to help unwind the tendons in your wrist and forearm at work. Remember to approach these exercises with caution, especially if you have nerve tension (. Stop immediately if you feel acute electrical pain radiating while performing them. Repeat each exercise for a max of 10 repetitions.
As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure so make sure you’re always setting yourself up for success!
