    Therapy Band

Secure one end of a therapy band around your right foot. Securely grasp the therapy band handle in your right hand.

Sit comfortably in an upright position on the edge of a chair. You're leaning forward slightly at the waist. Your weight is supported by your left hand on your left thigh. Your right forearm is placed along your right thigh. Your right wrist is over your right knee, your wrist is in neutral position, and your thumb is on top, toward the ceiling.

Next, bend upward at your right wrist [this is radial deviation]. You'll feel the muscular contraction along the outside of your right forearm, near your wrist. Relax and return to the starting position.
