Wrist and forearm mobility for flexor groups

This simple technique can assist in soft tissue mobility of a group of muscles referred to as the common wrist flexors. These groups help to close the hand. Often arthritic conditions of the hand and fingers is accompanied with loss of mobility of these muscle/tendon groups. Furthermore a condition known as trigger finger can be helped with frequent movement of these tissues. To perform, place your hand onto a countertop, table, or other prop. It may be necessary to allow the fingers to initially fold over the edge as shown in the video. This would be beneficial if there is excessive tightness of the tissues. Over time the mobility of these tissues would improve and could be performed while placing the entire hand and fingers atop of your prop.
