Stretching the wrist extensors can be an effective treatment for tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis.

Teaching Points

  • Hold one arm straight out in front.
  • Use the other hand to bend the wrist and point the fingers towards the floor, applying gentle pressure.  
  • Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.  

Variations

  • Use a wall to apply pressure rather than the other hand.
