  • When you stretch back the hand away from the wrist you benefit the elbow and whole arm because the stretch lengthens muscles from the wrist, right up to the shoulder.  This will help those who garden a lot, shovel snow for extended periods, golf, play hand held games and type quite a bit on computers.
