Elbow, Wrist Pain

Elbow, Wrist Pain

Just beyond your elbow, all the muscles on the back of your forearm converge into a single thick tendon, the common extensor tendon. At the point where the muscles converge, in the muscles that extend the wrist and fingers, lies one of the more inevitable trigger points in the body: Perfect Spot No. 5. It is constantly provoked both by computer usage today and by the use of a pen in simpler times — and by the occasional tennis match, then and now.

Unlike trigger points in the back or the shoulders, where feelings of aching and stiffness are all-too-familiar, people are often unaware that there is anything wrong in their forearm until things get ugly. Unfortunately, instead of being diagnosed correctly, many people who develop an active Spot No. 5 are diagnosed with a tendinitis of the elbow (tennis elbow) or nerve impingement at the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome)
