Step by Step

  1. This is a good exercise for strength or endurance of the Triceps
  2. Like any exercise you should only do the exercise if it is pain free during, after and the next day. Obviously it is normal to feel some delayed onset muscle soreness between 48 to 72 hours but this should be manageable
  3. Get about 1 metre of exercise band and stand on one end with your heel
  4. Take hold of the other end of the band with the same sides hand
  5. Get your hand behind you so that you elbow is bent and it is pointing up to the ceiling
  6. Make sure that the slack is taken up at this point

  9. Straighten the elbow so that your hand is pointing to the ceiling

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
