Nerve Flossing - Ulnar Nerve Bias

This exercise is great for decreasing the tightness in the medial aspect of your forearm, decreasing any tingling into your pinky fingers and to increase the mobility of your forearms, shoulders and neck. Your stiff neck may have occurred from sleeping, or whiplash from a minor car accident or a sports injury. Consult a Physiotherapist if you have a serious neck injury or if you are unsure before doing this exercise. Begin in a seated position with tall posture and shoulders down. Then create a circle with your thumb and index finger and bring the elbow and forearm up while pointing the heel of the hand upwards forming a mask over your eye with the circle. Hold this for a second and then return the arm and hand back to the starting position. Repeat this for sixty seconds, doing five sets three times per day. The progression of this exercise is to first start with the head rotated away, then bringing the thumb and index finger over the eye . The duration is also for sixty seconds for five sets, three times per day.
