This is an excellent stretch to replenish nutrients and re-oxygenate the distal upper extremity. This is an active dynamic stretch that flosses the median nerve in the carpal tunnel and promotes healthy neural tension of the nervous system. This composite stretch originates at the nerve roots in the brachial plexus and pulls all the way down to the median nerve that passes through the carpal tunnel. Perform this stretch to give your body rest when performing forceful gripping, repetitive gripping, awkward or sustained postures of the elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
These exercises are to improve health and fitness.
If you have an injury or illness, consult with a health care professional before attempting.
