Hand and Wrist Exercises: Wrist Flexion

Woman doing wrist flexion exercise.

This exercise is designed to stretch your hands and wrists. Before beginning, read through all the instructions. While exercising, breathe normally. If you feel any pain, stop the exercise. If pain persists, tell your healthcare provider. Here are the steps for wrist flexion:

  • Hold your right or left hand in front of you with your palm down and elbow bent.

  • Grasp the back of that hand with your other hand. Pull back so your fingers point down as you straighten your arm. Feel a stretch in your forearm and wrist. Hold for 3 to 5 seconds. Then relax.

  • Repeat 10 to 15 times. Do 3 to 4 sets a day.
