In this clip I’m going to show you some additionalforearm stretches here. You’re going to actually bring your arms out, parallel to the floorwith your palms down. Again, roll your shoulders up and back, your chest and your spine isnice and long. You’re going to go ahead and actually flip both palms up towards the ceiling,first, and you’re going to bring one fingertip, one hand’s fingertips down towards the floor.The other hand is going to come onto your fingers and press in. Here, notice where youneed to go. You don’t have to have your hands completely parallel to the floor, your fingersperpendicular, I’m sorry, to the floor. Here, you just want to really focus on where youfeel that maximum stretch, and only go to
where you feel that maxim stretch. You don’twant to be in pain. You can feel a little discomfort, but that’s as far as you wantto go. So as you inhale and you exhale, just stretch. Just hold it there for just a secondor two, not very long. Inhale and exhale! When you release, you can just release. Bringboth arms up towards the ceiling and switch sides, taking your opposite fingers pressingin towards, down towards the floor. Inhale, exhale! One more breathe. In and exhale, andrelease. Shake everything out. Roll your shoulders up and back, and see how that feels..
Yoga for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Palm Stretch Yoga for Carpal Tunnel
I’m Theresa Murphy on behalf of Expert Village.In this clip we’re going to do a stretch specifically for the palmar fascia. Very intense stretchto affect this part of the hands, webbing of the hand, that helps to tie all the musclesand bones nicely together. So you want to start with your one hand at a time, fingertips pointing back towards you. You’re going to put your whole hand on the floor. And withyour opposite hand, pinning down just the length of the fingers, so I don’t want toput my pressure on the back of my hand but just on the finger length, because then, ifI can pin down those fingers, I can start to peel back the palm of the hand off thefloor. We did a similar stretch working one
finger at a time, if you remember. This ismuch less intense than this action here. All right, and the more you can get the hand upoff the flooragain I’m making it look easythe more stretch you’ll get. So you might findthat this is all that’s comfortable for you; And work with what’s comfortable, and thatwill change. Make sure you do both hands, and one hand will definitely be differentthan the other..
