Reverse Phalen’s Stretch

  • HOW: Perform the stretch by putting your hands and fingers together with your fingers pointed up. Then, lift your elbows up so that your forearms are at least parallel to the ground. Hold for the time prescribed.
  • FEEL: You should feel a stretch in your fingers and fingertips as well as the palm side of your wrists and forearms.
  • COMPENSATION: Try not to deviate your wrist, forearm, or finger position. It is ok to lower your elbows if it is too uncomfortable for your wrists.
