The video for the extensors begins at 1 minute 7 seconds into this clip. I plan on filming this technique again as the camera angle was not good for showing what I am doing.This picture below shows the technique better.
Wrist & Finger Extensors – Pain Pattern
Trigger points may be found in any of the wrist and finger extensors.When active, they typically will refer pain down the posterior forearm and onto the back of the hand. Trigger points in the extensors are often an aggravating factor in tennis elbow.
Wrist & Finger Extensors – Treatment
While pressing into the trigger point with your thumb, extend your client’s elbow and wrist and either pronate or supinate their forearm to find the position where there is no pain in the trigger point. Hold for 30 - 90 seconds, or until you feel a release, then bring your client back to a neutral position while continuing to hold the trigger point, and ask your client how it feels.
The Massage Technique Library was recently rebuilt from the ground up. The new library is much faster and more secure than the previous versions. There is an improved search function, and an enhanced comment system. Soon there will be a way to save your favorite techniques in a favorites menu.
The library is currently free and open to the public, so please check it out while you can. No login or registration is necessary.
Soon the library will once again be for members only, with the exception of the free section.
We are not raising the price, so membership will continue to be only $7 per month or $72 per year. There will be a way to sign up for the library on May 10th. Current library members will have access to the library without signing up again but may need to reset their password.
With the rebuilding of over 800 interlinked pages with video content, there are bound to be some errors and glitches. Please let us know of any problems or concerns by using our contact form here. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I hope you enjoy the new library, and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
