This is an instructional video to correctly demonstrate Radial Nerve neural self mobilisation

Step by Step

  1. It is a good exercise for neural dynamic issues from tethering or shortening of the Radial nerve
  2. With this exercise it is extremely important to know that this exercise is correct. If you have an underlying reason for the nerve limitation then this exercise will make things worse. Make sure that a Physio has okayed this exercise for you and make sure that you have read the disclaimer for this video.
  3. As with any exercise it needs to be pain free during, after and the next day or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels.
  4. The aim of this exercise is to be progressive and cautious in the amount of motion that you perform. I suggest to air on the side of caution and do more range as you tolerate.
  5. In standing or sitting, bend your elbow to 90 degrees and take your arm out to the side at your shoulder so that your upper arm is at 90 degrees abduction.
  6. Next internally rotate your shoulder so that your fingers are pointing to the floor
  7. Now side flex your neck to that side and extend your wrist and fingers as to point them away from you
  8. This is the rough starting position
  9. Now simultaneously extend your elbow and side flex your neck away from the that side.
  10. Only do this gently. Don’t force the stretch point.
  11. Once you have gone far enough then return to the starting position
  12. Repeat this for roughly 30 seconds and repeat for the other arm
  13. Due to nerve irritability you should perform this exercise 2 to 3 times per day but no more than this

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).
