Hi this is Dana Ranahan from Body Works Sports Physiotherapy and today I’m here to talk about elbow pain.

Have you had trouble with tennis elbow or lateral elbow pain? This is sometimes a really difficult problem to treat. This is where our wrist extensor muscles go, so when we lift our wrist, the muscles come up and attach at the elbow. What often happens when you get tight on the outside of the arm, is it pulls our arm away from your body.

A technique that we can use is actually trying to bring the arm back to neutral, which will lengthen this off. So you can try this as a home exercise assuming it helps to relieve pain.

  • Come up to a wall, basically hook your elbow close into the wall, so the inside of your elbow and all along here is against the wall.
  • Use your other hand to pull the arm over, just to keep it snugged in against the wall.
  • Then you’ll do a little gripping exercise, or a little exercise moving your hand, and it should be pain free.

If you can do this without pain, this can be an exercise that can help restore normal movement at the elbow. Give this a try if you have lateral elbow pain.

If it doesn’t work you may need some assessment to see what’s going on. In this case, or if you have more questions, you can check out our website at
