So in order to work higher up into the elbow, a lot of people get tennis elbow or golfers elbow. We’re going to adjust the therapy roller to the number 2 or number 3 spot. Try it in the number 2. And then take your arm, opening the top just enough to fit it through and if you have golfers elbow. If you have tennis elbow, you’re going to place the therapy roller on the outside. The best golfers elbow tendonitis therapy using Rolflex does all the work.
So right where it is on the outside of the elbow is where you get that tennis elbow tendonitis, so start by squeezing in and find the sore spot. Usually it’s right in the attachment of the tendon and then start making some micro movements, really, really small movements. And then if that’s comfortable you can make bigger movements into pronation and supination or just rotating the arm back and forth. The thing that is going to get you the best results in terms of tendonitis is actually flexing and flossing the tendon from inside out.
So, when you move your wrist back and forth like that, you’re actually engaging the muscle and stretching the tendon under the pressure from the rolflex. So experiment, open the hands wide, feel the stretch, and then make a fist at the inside and it’s going to get really intense through both the outside and the inside where the pressure is.
And then try one where you keep a fist and just make little half circles back and forth. You’re literally mobilizing and pressing blood and fluid through the area that’s injured. Good!
It’s the best golfers elbow tendonitis therapy using Rolflex after all.
And then the rolling, when you strip or floss the muscle this way, this is actually pushing fluid through the arm. And you want to keep really strong firm pressure on it. But notice how your hand automatically adjusts the pressure. And it’s almost like you’re not even thinking about it, you are going to naturally lighten up when it gets too intense. You almost have to kind of teach yourself to keep enough pressure on it, even if it gets a little intense, because you get the best result when you have a little bit of that good kind of pain.
Should be a hurts good feeling. That’s perfect. For golfers elbow it’s a problem of the inside medial attachment here. You’re going to actual rotate the therapy arm around. It just spins, yep. Same thing, open it up, get that green ridge, the bigger green ridge, right to the point where the tendon attaches. It will be really sensitive so be careful. Then start to squeeze. And the same thing, start to make those micro-movements with the arm.
If that’s comfortable you can make bigger movements. But notice how it feels good to do it slowly, versus flopping around. It’s—if you want, you want to think about this in terms of conscious controlled movement. So you can start to go faster when you get better at it. But always start out really slow and try to feel what’s happening under the pressure. It will make it really safe and feel really controlled.
