Joint Pain Relief/elbow pain

Question
Hi Gary,
I have elbow pain on my right arm. I play golf and hurt most when I have  bad shots from the sand bunker. No pain with other shots. I strapped my forearm when playing but it does not seem to work as I have pain on the inside of the elbow and muscle pain on my forearm.  I've just watched your video on elbow joint pain and have tried relieving the soft tissues.  Would you have any other advice.  Thanks

Answer
Hi Evelyn,

Okay, so if you've been to my Elbow Joint Pain Relief page,
http://www.do-it-yourself-joint-pain-relief.com/elbow-joint-pain.html
and you've followed along with the videos,
I would think you've noticed some tight tissue that perhaps still needs to be released.

I've worked on a fair number of golfers with elbow joint pain, and about half of them
really need to release some of the deep forearm muscles that may be difficult for you
to get at.  You may want to have a friend work on your forearm by pushing both thumbs
into any tight tissue while you open and close your hand.

If you want a professional to do it, then
I'd recommend you go to these two websites,
http://www.rolf.org/find
and
http://www.rolfguild.org/practitioners/international
Call the practioners in your area and go to someone who you feel has the best chance of helping you.
I'd generally recommend someone who has been in practice at least 5 years, preferably 10 years.  And feel free to try more than one person if you don't feel like you've found a good one.  I'm optimistic that this could be of benefit, so at least think about it.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Gary Crowley

Expertise

I can show 95 percent people how to relieve or eliminate their own joint pain for basically every joint in their body. 95 percent of joint pain, even chronic joint pain, is due to the shortening and tightening of tissue around joints. I show people how to release that tight tissue that is causing their pain. Every joint and every person is unique, but the principles to free yourself from pain are the same in 95 percent of cases.

I've been a Chronic Pain Relief Specialist for over 23 years, and have worked with over 25,000 bodies.
