Prolonged pruning can be especially problematic if you hold your hand incorrectly or if you don't have a good pair of pruners. When you're pruning, always hold your hand so your wrist is in a neutral or straight position. Grip strength is strongest in this position, and you have to use less exertion to cut or prune. Never bend your wrist down at an angle: you not only lose strength but you're also more likely to develop tendinitis.
