A huge problem I see with olympic lifters, crossfitters and powerlifters is wrist pain. After unloading the wrist to get rid of pain it's important to slowly load that area back up. Here's a good progression from @tony.comella.? .? GRADED EXPOSURE? —? The videos above demonstrates a sequence I put together for someone with persistent wrist pain. After the initial assessment, we determined the best route for recovery would be graded exposure to wrist extension, as most symptoms were created from these position (i.e. plank, push up).? —? Sometimes there will be discomfort with rehab and that is okay, as is the case with this example. Patient was educated on expectations, as well as given permission to perform these exercises with an acceptable level of pain (person dependent), with goal of minimizing soreness the next day.? —? These exercises are specific to the person, but can be used as a general sequence for progression of wrist loading. In this particular case, these were progressed over the course of 2-3 months before individual achieved goal of performing body weight push ups with no pain.? —? 1?? Quadruped rocking.? 2?? Crawl Position rocking? 3?? Crawl Position Anti-Rotation? 4?? Plank rocking? 5?? Plank Anti-rotation? 6?? Feet elevated plank anti-rotation.? 7?? @Side plank? —? These drills are also appropriate for anyone looking to prep their wrists, shoulders, and/or trunk before working out.? #performancetherapy #prehab #fitness #exercise #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #DPT #DPTstudent #physio #physiotherapy #chiro #chiropractic #mobility #fitness #correctiveexercise #movebetter #movement #sportsrehab #athletictrainer#strengthandconditioning #personaltrainer @powermonkeyfitness @championptp #crossfit #powerlifting #olympicweightlifting #olympiclifting
