Releasing the Forearm Extensors

Posted by on Nov 11, 2020 in Health and Wellness, Muscle Release

Our work life can have a dramatic effect on our bodies, and when we’re writing or typing a lot, among other things, our forearms end up with a lot of tension from constantly holding our hands back towards our body (in extension). Having a daily routine that includes exercises targeting our forearms helps to reduce the stress that our jobs put on us and prevent injuries like repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) that are common with forearm extensors.
 
So this week we’ve asked Jason to show us how. In this Quick Tip, Jason will walk us through how to direct some gentle pressure into the area using a lacrosse ball. It’s easy to do at home or even at work on your break, so give it a try and see how you feel. If you need more support, let your therapist know or reach out to our intake specialists to find out how bodywork can help.
