bloomington il chiropractorGet Rid of Elbow and Upper Arm Pain by Flossing the Musculocutaneous Nerve

The musculocutaneous nerve is a unique nerve of the upper extremity. It acts as a motor nerve from the shoulder to the elbow and a sensory nerve from the elbow to the wrist. The musculocutaneous nerve is responsible for suppling the biceps brachii, coracobrachialis, and the brachialis muscles of the arm that help to flex the elbow and perform flexion of the elbow with supination (palm up) movements. A task we perform many times throughout the day.

Irritation to the musculocutaneous nerve occurs due to compression, over stretching, or a direct blow to the arm. The clinical symptoms that can occur are weakness in the bicep muscle and an inability to flex the arm. You may also feel some numbness at and / or below the elbow.

The video below will demonstrate how to perform an musculocutaneous nerve floss a, simple and effective, way to treat pain with flexion of the elbow, pain in the elbow and numbness sensations around the elbow. Watch the video below to see Dr. Shepard perform a recommended way of flossing the musculocutaneous nerve.
