On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.
The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.
These exercise plans are designed as general templates for wrist and forearm pain. They are useful to build strength and resilience for physical tasks including lifting, gripping and twisting actions.
The early exercise plan aims to maintain flexibility of both the wrist flexor and extensor soft tissues whilst also keeping the fingers active for functional, gripping activity. The intermediate programme focuses on strengthening the wrist and forearm using relatively little equipment. Finally, the advanced plan – which significantly loads the wrist and forearm muscles and is designed for those who have physical demanding jobs, works on enhancing strength and robustness in the wrist and forearm muscles.
We have information pages for specific conditions in the hand, wrist and forearm, click on the links below to find out more information about each one including typical causes, treatment & management, and, additional resources:
Please click here to be re-directed to our YouTube channel playlist for video demonstrations of each exercise recommended for wrist pain/strengthening. Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
