Please watch PNF Principles before doing this stretch.

 

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.

 

Tense

Have your client attempt to extend their wrist and supinate their forearm against your resistance - only as strong and as long as is comfortable.

 

Release

As the wrist extensor muscles fatigue, allow your client’s wrist to extend and their forearm to supinate.

 

Restretch

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.

 

Note:

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.
