Mobility drills to decrease elbow pain
Typically, pain in the elbow is not necessarily due to the elbow itself, rather the joints above/below (i.e. shoulder/wrist) that have movement or mobility impairments, leading to dysfunction in the elbow. The elbow is innately stable, and when the mobile joints above and below fail to live up to their mobility, the elbow takes the brunt of the stress during repetitive activities. Examples of this include throwing, snatching, clean and jerk, handstands, pull-ups, and many other functional movements.
