Sports injuries are common reasons for seeking chiropractic care. However, often pains in your wrists, arms and elbows are just an overuse of the surrounding muscles and can be alleviated with stretching. Even if you do not golf or play tennis, you may benefit from doing these exercises.
The Golfer’s Elbow stretch provides quick pain relief for tight forearm muscles that cause pain in the hands and wrist. You will know if you need to do this stretch if it hurts on the inside of your elbow when you go to grip of lift a heavy object.
This stretch helps to alleviate the pain from tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), a repetitive strain injury resulting in tenderness in the tendons on the outside of the elbow.
