I have a client who recently got post distal radial fracture repair surgery and I was wondering if anyone knew of any exercises that would be good rehab. I know that they need to work on ROM grip and forearm strength but I was wondering if there were exercises that focused mostly on the distal part of the forearm and if some exercises where better or worse than others for building their wrist back up.
Hello Dani Miro Quesada,
I would not work with this person until they are finished with physical therapy. I would stay in contact to find out what they are doing to better help them when it is time to start training again. You will want to get permission from the client to stay in contact with the doctor and physical therapist for the best input and advice. Stay in the client’s pain free range of motion if they are cleared to work with you. Take things slowly and listen to the body so it will heal properly. We usually do not go after the victim; we work around the injury.
