Quick Exercises for Wrist Pain aka RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury)

hey do you suffer from wrist pain otherwise known as RSI repetitive strain injury well I've got a couple of exercises or will help relieve the pain my name is Tian Li from Melbourne Australia and I'm just going to quickly demonstrate as a sufferer of myself of RSI I want to show you what I do to relieve the stress in the pain when it gets too much and for me the reason I'm or what's caused by RSI is you know sitting in front of the computer all day and just clicking the mouse click click click click click and that's what's caused a lot of pain in my wrist so what you need for this for the first exercise anyway is anything that weighs about a kilo C I mean you can even use a bag of potatoes you know or a bag of sand whatever it is but for me I had this one kilo weight so and I use it all the time so it was worthwhile for me to invest in this one Callaway but anything you know even a bag of flour if you want to tie that and a broomstick or any kind of stick that you can use and what I've done for me is I had an old thera-band which you know that's good for resistance exercises and it kept rolling around so I've just typed these on as a stopper but anyway you probably don't need that you just need something to tie your weight onto the so you can actually it can actually move all you're doing is exercising and all you have to do is just basically put your arms out straight like this so shoulder high and what you want to do is rotate your wrists go forwards first and what I suggest you do because I've been doing this for quite a while now I can actually do it up to 30 but what I suggested you to do is to do it do it 20 times each way because it is a very strong exercise and you'll find you may not even be able to do 20 of the first time around so arms out straight slight workshop elbow slightly bent but arms up straight um shoulder height and you want to rotate your wrist forwards first so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 and then the opposite way so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 now I know it doesn't look like much but it is a very very strong exercise and you'll find that if you even just doing that every night will help a lot with your RSI with the with your wrist pain and I'll just quickly show you another exercise okay so with this exercise you need to sit down and what you have to do is what you're trying to do is you're stretching the muscles in your forearm here and here so on the front in the back so what you do is um put your wrist like that we arms down well you your side like that and push in to push down and if you want to feel more of a stretch lean back and the further you you lean back the more you're stretching the muscles in here and it feels real really good this is a really good way to quickly relieve pain if you've got it in your wrist and then turn it around facing the other way and same thing push down and lean back and you'll feel this nice beautiful stretch up here and again the more you lean back the more of a stretch you'll film and also push down and lean back at the same time so you get a bigger stretch so like that so your risk this time or your firearm is facing upwards push down and lean back and if you want to count my count up to 10 or something like that so your door evenly on both sides and same again so now your forearm is facing the other way pushing down and leaning back that feels good so just do that for however long you feel you need to stretch for and just shake it out afterwards if you found this video useful and helpful post me a comment and remember to subscribe to my channel and click like and I will see you on the next video thanks for watching
