Elbow Strain: Median Nerve Mobility Exercise
Place your hand onto your opposite shoulder to help prevent it from hiking up. Then turn your head to the opposite side and abduct the shoulder to 90 degrees. Together, extend the elbow, wrist and fingers out fully. As you start to feel a pull into the right side, turn your head to look towards the extended side. Repeat this by looking to the opposite side and extending the entire arm, wrist and fingers while turning again towards the extended side. Do it for 60 seconds, 4 sets two times per day. This is a great nerve mobility exercise biasing the median nerve. It’s important to regain full mobility in the nervous system when you are rehabbing from elbow, forearm, hand and finger tendon & muscle strains. Whether you’re an elite, avid to recreational athlete or just use your arms and hands a lot for work or activities of daily living, having the mobility you need in your muscle skeletal system will help optimize your overall function!
