Tips on Preventing Wrist Injuries while Carving

The art of woodcarving is a fantastic hobby or trade, but it can be hard on your wrists. Try some of these helpful tips to strengthen your wrists so as to prevent injury. First of all, take many breaks from carving, stretching your arms above your head and holding your hands together for at least a minute. Next, try holding your hands in a prayer-like position with your fingers pointing towards the ceiling. Press your palms together and hold for 30 seconds. If need be, you can wear a wrist brace found at your local drug store while carving, or even while resting it to lessen any discomfort in your wrists. Most importantly, if you are experiencing possible Carpal Tunnel symptoms, it is important to consult with your doctor.
