Forearm and Grip Training
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy performing a standing weight plate rotatory exercise that is great for the forearm flexors and extensors as well as grip and wrist strength. As an osteopath we are required to use our body frequently to treat clients and as a result we need to consider building capacity in our body to help us endure the stresses associated with the constant use of our hands and arms when performing manual therapy. Whilst many people would argue that our job provides suitable conditioning and therefore we dont need to do anything extra, I would argue that it is essential that we undertake additional training to build further capacity and strength that looks to train the body across a variety of positions rather than the repetitive nature that our job task often trains.
