Please watch PNF Principles before doing this stretch.
Hold your client’s wrist and elbow so that both are flexed, and stretch the wrist into flexion only as far as is comfortable.
Have your client attempt to extend their wrist and supinate their forearm against your resistance - only as strong and as long as is comfortable.
As the wrist extensor muscles fatigue, allow your client’s wrist to extend and their forearm to supinate.
Hold your client’s wrist and elbow so that both are flexed, and stretch the wrist into flexion only as far as is comfortable. hand pressing inferiorly on your client’s sacrum, bring your client’s foot toward their buttocks as far as is comfortable.
Forearm supinators are also included in this stretch because they can be involved in tennis elbow (extensor tendonitis), and because they share a common attachment at the lateral epicondyle of the humerus.
