Repeat the exercise where the injured hand is alternately pressed from side to side. The injured arm should finally be turned over and the exercise repeated by pressing the underside of the hand so that the injured lower arm becomes increasingly stretched on the under side. The stretching positions should be held for 20 seconds followed by 20 seconds of rest before repeating.

Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated. The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
