Many people will have wrist pain in the process of yoga practice. Some people have slight deformation of wrist muscles or joints caused by living habits. Some people have pain or illness in their wrists. Some people have incorrect exertion or correct position. Anyway, no matter what the three seven eleven is, they have yoga wrist pain.
In fact, the wrist is a very flexible joint of the human body, and the pain in daily life is also very frequent, because it is not originally used for bearing joints. Just look at the small carpal bones that are pieced together by “fragmentary”, so it’s easy to ache under a little pressure, not to mention that ignoring people’s “vulnerability” is born under the condition of its improper position Kind of support.
Since the wrist is so fragile, how do yoga masters support all kinds of handstand, balance and hand support? Let’s see how the force line of our arm is transmitted. No matter what posture we are in contact with the ground, it is the foundation. So in the hand support posture, the force line is transmitted from fingers and palms upward to shoulders and then to trunk. Yoga God relies on a stable foundation, a smooth upward transmission line of force, a stable body supported by shoulders, rather than putting all the strength on the wrist.
If you want to avoid wrist pain, you have to learn to use your hands well. Why two foot stand is more stable than one foot stand, because the area is large! Why do you let your hands push the ground when you practice yoga? You will unconsciously only let the big fish press the ground. Your hands and fingers are empty and unwilling to work. Please make sure that the rain and dew are evenly stained. Let each finger, finger root and big fish press the mat, and the tiger’s mouth also works downward.
Stretching your fingers can help us to extend the whole arm fascia line and relax the shoulders. Another advantage of supporting posture is that it can keep the wrist pressure at a minimum, so please also open your fingers greatly in supporting posture.
Learn to let the strength transmit upward. Try to keep the wrist under the shoulder in the hand support. Use the strength of pushing the ground with both hands to use the arm muscles to contract equitension, and push the strength upward instead of all pressing on the wrist.
There is still a gap between understanding the teacher’s command and actually achieving it. Many people will find that it is impossible to stretch their fingers with milk or press the above points of fingers to the ground at the same time. Because in the long-term use of computers and mobile phones, the muscles and ligaments of our hands will appear certain strain and imbalance or even bone deformation. The common symptoms are mother’s hand (inflammation of the lateral tendon of thumb) and carpal tunnel syndrome (narrow wrist, blood is difficult to pass through). The symptoms are pain, numbness, swelling and weakness, so the hands can not fit the ground.
Looking at the anatomy of the arms, wrists and fingers, we can see that the wrist joint is the joint of the ulna, radius and carpus of the arm. The carpus is connected with the metacarpus and the metacarpus is connected with the phalanges. These small hand bones are connected by muscles and ligaments, which helps us realize the activities of the wrists and fingers. Because the flexor digitorum muscle passes through the wrist and connects with the forearm muscle, the tension of the forearm, wrist and any part of the finger and fascia will limit each other’s range of motion.
Therefore, in order for our fingers, wrists and arms to be unrestricted within the normal range of activity, we need a series of exercises:
