RSI Hand palm therapy: six hand-excercises to avoid the ‘Repetitive Strain Ingury’!

April 23, 2009


Below you will find a number of hand palm therapy exercises that can be made in your workplace. It is not always necessary to perform all the exercises and the order is not important. Each exercise should be a light ‘stretch-feeling’ generation. Hold each exercise 15 to 30 full seconds and repeat each exercise three times (a general guideline).

An importance point of the exercises: during the normal movement range of joints not to exceed. Make sure in any case that during the exercises only a slight sense of strain occurs and no pain. If there is pain occurs reduce the number of repetitions and shortens the duration of the exercise. Delete the exercise completely if necessary. Perform the exercises calm and avoid pulling or springing movements (not force). Breathe in quietly through the exercises.
