Elbow Pain: Forearm Extensor Stretches
This stretch will help ease the tight lateral forearms. This condition is commonly called “Tennis Elbow”. Start with the elbow in a bent position. With a closed fist, fully flex the wrist and rotate it outwards with assistance from the other hand. Then straighten out the elbow and hold for 30 seconds and repeat for 3 sets. Lateral elbow pain can be caused by overly tight forearm extensor muscles from sports or repetitive strain activities such tennis, racket sports, rock climbing and prolonged computer desk work. If you have pain or unsure about doing this exercise, consult your local physiotherapist before continuing.
