Mortar and Pestle Technique

Hello Chowhounders,

I've been grinding spices in my little mortar and pestle, and with every grinding motion I feel as though my wrist is popping out of its socket or something. I don't imagine that that's what I should be feeling. What's the proper method for grinding stuff in the mortar and pestle?
