Seized up forearms? This will help

We see lots of patients that complain about tight forearms, often times related to tasks performed at work that require some sort of gripping activity. In this short video, we'll recommend a technique to properly stretch out the forearm to provide relief from strenuous gripping.

Your forearm consists of two bones that come together to join at the wrist, called the ulna and radius. Injuries to these bones or to the nerves or muscles on or near them can lead to forearm pain.


Your forearm pain can feel different depending on what’s causing it. In some cases, the pain may be burning and shooting due to nerve pain or damage. With others, the pain may be aching and dull, as can be the case with osteoarthritis. The pain can affect the function of your arm or hand, resulting in tingling and numbness.

Although there are many underlying causes of forearm pain, most can be treated either at home or through medical care. If you're experiencing forearm discomfort, try these easy exercises to relive pain immediately.
