Playing on guitar Oh man, my elbow hurts. Hey everybody, it’s Dr. Jo! And today we are going to talk about elbow injuries. So I’m going to go through some stretches to show you how to get that elbow feeling better. You might have heard of tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. So we’ll go through a set of those, and hopefully get you feeling better soon. What I’m going to show you now, is some stretches for medial or lateral epicondylitis. Say what! Most of you have been diagnosed as probably tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. And basically.
What that is, is a tennis elbow is when you have pain on the outside of your elbow. These muscles coming through here. Those are your extensor muscles, and then your golfer’s elbow is going to be on medial side, and that’s the inside. Those are your flexor muscles, then ones that pull it in. So what I’m going to have you do is you’re just going to start off with your arm out. You want to go gently first, so to stretch out your outer muscles, those wrist extensors, you’re going to pull your arm down. Now this is a stretch so you’re.
Going to hold it for 30 seconds, do it 3 times each. Now you can alternate if they are both kind of hurting a little bit. You can go back up this way. Now that’s going to stretch out those underneath muscles, those flexor muscles. So same thing, 3 times for 30 seconds. Now if that feels pretty good, and that’s not getting quite the stretch you want, then you can use your other hand for some overpressure. So what you’re gonna do is bring your other hand across, go down, stretch out those extensor muscles. Pull that hand all the way down,.

You can see how far down that goes. Now if it’s hurting, you’re probably not going to be able to go that far right away. You’re still going to hold it for 30 seconds, do it 3 times, and for those inner flexor muscles, you’re going to go out. You’re going to hold that there for 30 seconds. Now you can also do this against a wall if you want to. If that’s a little hard for you to pull, you can put your hands up against a wall and put.
