Step by Step

  1. If you need to improve the general range of movement in your elbows then this is an excellent group of exercises
  2. Remember these exercises should be pain free during after and the next day. The most that you should feel is a strong stretch sensation
  3. Each exercise should be held for 20-30 seconds at the end of range and you should aim to perform all of these exercises between 4 to 6 times per day
  4. Flexion
  5. With your elbow by your side and palm facing up, bend your elbow to bring your hand closer to your shoulder. Now use your opposite hand to push it for more of a stretch and hold
  6. Extension
  7. Rest your elbow on the edge of a table with a towel under your elbow. Straighten it out till it is fully straight. Now use your opposite hand to apply an extra stretch and hold
  8. Pronation and Supination
  9. With your arms by your side and your elbows bend at 90 degrees, interlink your finger in front of you with your thumbs on the top. Now twist your hands so that your thumbs are pointing to the right and hold and then twist until they are pointing to the left and hold
  10. Flexibility takes time to establish so be patient as it could takes several months to achieve improvements

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).
