Quick Tip: Ready for some forearm Deskinetics?

Posted by on Sep 19, 2017 in Health and Wellness, Psoas Deskinetics

A lot of our Deskinetics videos deal with the upper back and neck, but as many desk workers know, our forearms can also suffer from too much work at the computer. When you’re doing a lot of typing, the muscles in your forearms can become so tight that they start to pinch nerves — causing tingling and numbness in the hands.

This week’s Quick Tip is a classic Deskinetics stretch for the fascia around the forearm flexors, one area often related to forearm pain. And this video uses the magic of Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) which can be ideal if static stretches haven’t offered you relief. (If you need a refresher on AIS, check this out.) Even if your forearms aren’t bothering you, incorporating the stretch below into your daily routine can help prevent repetitive stress disorders in the future. Try it out and let us know what you notice!
