Wrist Pain #2

December 1, 2012

Welcome to SelfCare Saturday where we practice SelfLove through SelfCare!

Last week we took a look at wrist stability, and today we check out the importance of shoulder stability to reduce wrist pain. How do we stabilize around the shoulders in Downward facing dog, Plank, Crow, Handstand..?

It’s common to look only at what’s going on at one location when we’re trying to take care of pain, but often there’s something else adding to the problem. In this case the balance between strength and flexibility of the rotator cuff and my favourite superstar muscle, serratus anterior.

Stay tuned in to next week’s SelfCare Saturday where we will break down effective hand and wrist position while in the poses.
