Man suffering from elbow tendonitis

Whether you are strapped for time or are unsure of whether or not you’ll be able to do them properly, elbow tendonitis exercises are quick and easy to do. It is important that when you experience symptoms of elbow tendonitis and are able to diagnose it through understanding the causes and symptoms, that you seek proper treatment. Treatment often includes participating in elbow tendonitis exercises that will allow you to get your elbow performing correctly again. When you are exercising your elbow as a form of elbow tendonitis treatment, ensure that you wear the proper protective gear, such as the Cho-Pat® Tennis Elbow Splint, to eliminate further injury.

Elbow Tendonitis Stretches

Some common elbow tendonitis stretches you can perform on your own include:
  • Deltoid Stretch – Anchor the StretchRite® to the top of a door. Standing with your side facing the door, reach across your body, and grab the end of the StretchRite®. Carefully step away from the door and lean into the stretch. This will stretch the outer portion of your upper arm.
  • Dumbbell Stretch – Place your forearm on a table, desk, stool, or other sturdy surfaces, hanging the wrist and arm off the edge. Holding a light dumbbell (or a can of soup or a water bottle), bend your wrist upwards and hold it for twenty seconds. Bend it down and hold it for twenty seconds. Repeat this ten times.
  • Extensor Stretch – Stretch your arm straight out in front of you, level with the shoulder. Bend your wrist to point your fingers down towards the floor. With your opposite hand, push against the back of your hand to give it a good stretch. Hold for 30 seconds, then relax. Repeat ten times.

In addition to your elbow tendonitis exercises and stretches, be sure to massage the elbow so that you can continue in pain relief. Simply press on the outer area of the elbow with two fingers and rub for approximately five minutes.
