Some hand pain exercises must be undertaken with an abundance of caution. If you practice yoga, caution must be taken not to put your wrists at risk of further injury. Yoga can put a lot of strain on your wrists – not a great idea if you already experience wrist pain. This is particularly true if you follow a rigorous yoga practice that involves lots of floor work and downward dogs.
In order to ease wrist pain when doing rigorous yoga poses, keep your fingers spread so that your weight is distributed across your hand and your muscles are engaged. This can help support the wrist.
Always tell your yoga instructor if you have wrist pain. He or she may be able to help you find modifications to your regular yoga poses to avoid pain, as well as recommend hand pain exercises for you to do.
Being consistent in doing some of these exercises can help you to regain flexibility and more importantly, stay connected in a world where wrists and hands are more important than ever for virtual communication!
