In this video Carpal Tunnel will
teach how to do stress ball exercises for your Carpal Tunnel. They include a combination
of isometric and dynamic workouts. These exercises strengthen the flexor muscles to help your
wrist get back in shape. The workouts we are going to show are also used for toning the
hands and forearms. All you need is one small sized stress ball. So once you have it in
your hand right now, let’s get to it! First exercise is to place the stressball on top
of your palm, then squeeze the ball using four fingers from the little finger to the
index finger, while leaving out the thumb. Hold it for 10 seconds. Remember to always
maintain your wrist in a neutral position. Meaning to keep your wrist straight and not
bent. Do the same with the other hand, holding it for 10 seconds. The 2nd exercise is quite
similar with the first one, except that we squeeze the ball 9 times dynamically, then
finally squeezing and holding it for 10 seconds at the 10th count. So to do that, we go like
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and then 10, hold it for 10 seconds. Then do the same with the
other hand. 3rd exercise only involves the thumb. This set is beneficial especially to
people also suffering from De Quervain. So to start, squeeze the stress ball using only
the thumb. Then hold it for 10 seconds. Remember to always maintain your wrist in a neutral
position. Then do the same with the other hand. In any circumstance it gives unbearable
pain, stop immediately. 4th exercise is just like the 3rd one, except we are going dynamic.
Pump the ball 9 times, then hold it at the 10th count. So we go like, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
6, 7, 8, 9, and then 10, hold it for 10 seconds right here. 5th exercise is to place the stress
at the tip of your fingers like so, then squeeze and hold it for 10 seconds, while your fingers
should not be bent. The do same with the other hand. Then we go dynamic, squeeze it consecutively
9 times, then hold it for 10 seconds at the 10th count. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. That concludes our Carpal Tunnel exercises using a stress
ball for today. You can do these exercises for a maximum of three sets each day, or whatever
suits you best since our capabilities are different from one another. Just remember
to give yourself some good rest in between workouts to let your muscles heal. Also it
is crucial to work on your extension muscles, which we will discuss in the next few videos.
