Convenient (Use them ANYWHERE)
Forearm and elbow pain is common among people who participatein repetitive activities that primarily use the FLEXOR muscles of the forearm. Weightlifters, rock climbers, bowlers, and tennis players, to name a few, are far more likely to develop Repetitive Strain Injurythan most the average person. In fact, tendonitis and carpal tunnel are some of the MOST common conditions that can come from these activities due to the strain caused by the repetitive movements under strenuous force!
Extensor exercises are recommended by professionals for the rehabilitation of these conditions but ideally, you would do yourself a HUGEfavor and avoid injury in the first place. Or at least prevent an acute case from becoming chronic!
You may still be wondering, WHAT causes this nagging pain??? Conditions like Carpal Tunnel and Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) are the result of OVERUSE and also NEGLECT of the TWO primary muscle groups in your hands, forearm, and wrist; specifically, overuse of your flexor muscles and underuse of your extensors.
The FLEXORS in your arm are activated when you squeeze and the EXTENSORS activate when you open your hand. Lifting weights requires you to repeatedly engage ONLY your flexors, causing a musculature imbalance in our forearms which over time leads to strained muscles and tendons followed by pain in the surrounding joints. If you don’t take some time off at this point (often months) it can progress into a debilitating and chronic case of carpal tunnel or tendonitis.
THAT’S WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO EXERCISE YOUR EXTENSORS!
The GOOD NEWSis that training with Finger Strengthener is a simple solution to the problem that can prevent pain, stabilize your wrist and elbow, improve musculature and make you more resistant to injury by strengthening and balancing the underdeveloped muscle groups of your forearm and promoting blood flow to the area which stimulates healing.
Our therapeutic Finger Strengthener bands come in 3 resistance levels: GREEN (light), GREY (moderate) & BLUE (heavy) to provide you with your ideal training level.
