Wrist exercises can help to improve range of motion, stability and strength of your wrist. These may be appropriate after you have broken your wrist or developed a condition such as a tendonitis to help restore your wrist motion and function.

Active Range of Motion

Gently move your wrist in the different planes to feel a gentle stretch but no pain.

Proprioception

This is the body’s awareness of where it is in space and the ability to adapt to external forces placed through the body. It does this through feedback from receptors in the skin, muscles and ligaments. Injuries to the wrist can directly damage those structures or they forget how to work properly due to being immobilised.
