Exercising Your Hands and Wrists

What’s in This Section for You?

We often use our hands and wrists while we are at our desks, especially when we use computers.

When we keep making the same movements, we could strain or even injure our hands and wrists. This video will help keep your hands and wrists strong and flexible.

You may view the Exercising Your Hands and Wrists @ Your Desk video by using YouTube or streaming video (.mov), or saving the file (.wmv).
