Forearms and wrists have become an interesting region for chiropractors, physical therapists and orthopedists because the number of injuries and dysfunctions in the area have increased over the last two decades. Thank the change in lifestyle that computers have afforded us, as increased typing for most non-secretaries has taken a toll on peoples’ grippers.
From carpel and cubital tunnel to tennis and golfer’s elbow, the forearm region plays a massive role in today’s common arm and wrist injuries. As the main gripping muscles, any activity forcing people to flex their wrist or fingers increases the prevalence of overuse injuries. The most common cause of forearm injuries is a combined tightness/weakness typical of a muscular imbalance.
