Summary:

A simple stretch for the thumb extensors and abductors. This stretch is sometimes a part of De Quervain's tenosynovitis or tendonopathy treatment.

Description:

  • NOTE: this stretch can become very painful, very suddenly, so progress slowly through the movement
  • with the thumb flexed into the palm of the hand, gently curl the remaining fingers over the thumb (as pictured)
  • gently flex the whole wrist towards the ground, being very careful as the limit of the stretch can be very sudden
  • stretch within the comfortable range only
