  • Dealing with Wrist Pain and Sprains

    Did you know the most common injury seen in Australian workplaces is strains and sprains?

    Woman's hands typing at a laptop while wearing a BioMagnetic Wrist Support in black on her right hand. Combine this with the amount of people already suffering from conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, and you have got a lot of sore wrists!
     
    Unfortunately, the wrist is one of those areas that we tend to ignore, especially in an office setting. The work can often be physically light, like typing, so we ignore the pain and persevere. 
     
    The reality is, that if ignored, these symptoms will most likely get worse.
     
    Fortunately, there are many exercises you can do to help strengthen your wrists. 

    Actions to Help Carpal Tunnel Symptoms

    1. Ice, Elevation, Massage: Massage the wrist and painful area and use a ice pack to relieve pain.
    2. Wear a Support: wearing a wrist brace (also called a splint) to keep the wrist straight, especially at night. The Bio Magnetic Wrist Support offers incredible support and compression. As well as, exposure to 6 therapeutic grade magnets.
    3. Wrist Rotations: Rotate your wrists by moving only your hands up, down, left, and right. Repeat up to four times.
    4. Finger Stretch: Stretch your fingers wide and then relax them, and repeat up to four times.
    5. Thumb Stretch: Using your opposite hand, push your thumb backwards until you feel a gentle stretch. Repeat up to four times.
    As always we recommend you talk to your doctor about the best way to treat your wrist pain.
