With many people starting to make a career out of competition, an often overlooked aspect is a player’s hand and wrist health. Especially for Super Smash Bros. Melee players, many at the top level complain about chronic wrist and hand pain, brought on by years of competition by playing with the Gamecube controller. This problem has become so acute, that you have products like the Hitbox and the recently announced B0XX which are being partially marketed as controllers to alleviate these health issues.
Well, in order to stop the problem at its source, the self styled esports and gaming doctor Dr Levi Harrison has collected some stretches that players can do to help stop any potential hand or wrist pain. Whether you are a professional fighting game player, a casual tournament goer or someone who just plays games a lot, these stretches are worth trying if you are experiencing any discomfort while playing for extended periods.
