If you're watching these video is maybe because you have Tennis Elbow otherwise known as lateral epicondylitis... or maybe you know someone that suffers from it. It is fairly common and today I 'd like to show you some exercises and gentle mobilization I give my patients to work on at home in order to treat themself.
So the first thing involved with lateral epicondylitis is generally some tension in the radial nerve. I would like to show you is how to mobilize your radial nerve. In standing like this, the first thing I do is on the involved side, which let's say my right elbow is involved. Turning your arm in, lifting your pinky up and bringing your arm out in a little bit back and immediately returning. You're going to stay within the range of motion and where you feel the pull in your arm. Not trying to go too much into the pain if it's painful at the end of the range. And basically just oscillating like this for 30 seconds.
