Does anyone have remedy for regaining elbow extension? No pain, no injury to my recollection, certainly not a break or fracture. However, I’m missing a few degrees of extension. No problems with flexion. I’ve rolled triceps, voodoo and most videos I could find. I just can’t seem to get my elbow to drop into full range.
Work up/down stream of the elbow.
Have you addressed your bicep or forearm?
Episode 291: Elbow Pain and Grody-Tacked Down Forearms
Thursday, March 31st, 2016
I just saw the video posted on March 31st that I think could be helpful. I’ve just started working out my extensors that are very tight (which is telling). Perhaps I should try voodoo flossing forearm or bicep only, then putting my elbow through full ROM. Thanks for the info!
Consider some distraction work while you’re at it. Emphasize external rotation and gapping distraction with a power band. Floss in and out of extension end range 50ish reps. Combine that with some voodoo flossing and smash with a barbell. Sprinkle in some t spine mobility. Lost elbow rom may be a downstream effect of your shoulder being in a bad position so restoring T spine position and therefore shoulder position may be beneficial too.
I actually just watched a video suggesting it could be shoulders. Started smashing around my tricep/armpit. Could be helpful!
