Pain in the Back of Your Arm? Try a Radial Nerve Floss (video included)

chiropractor bloomington il -

The radial nerve is part of a network of nerve fibers (for you anatomy junkies, this network is called the Brachial Plexus) that begins in your neck and travels down the back of your arm, forearm, and hand.

This nerve can be caught or trapped by several muscles and ligaments throughout the arm. The tricep muscle and supinator muscle are the two most common places for the radial nerve to become entrapped. When this happens, there is often tingling in the back of the fingers, pain in the fingers, pain in the forearm, and/or pain in the back of the arm.

One of the best solutions: a nerve floss, of course! A nerve floss is a very effective way of getting the nerve to move freely and often helps to relieve the pain and other related symptom, as well as decrease the nerve inflammation.

Watch the video below to see me floss my radial nerve.
