Tennis Elbow……Golfer's Elbow……No matter what you call it--it hurts!
It hurts to grab, grip, and twist! These conditions arise from overuse or injury. Below is a short description of each and what muscles are involved.

Golfer’s elbow, is on the other side of the arm—medial epicondylitis. This muscle, the pronator teres, is located near the inner elbow and can be felt when you turn your arm palm down.
Below is a video of how to use the armaid to heal these conditions. When your workout is grip intensive or you use a hammer all day… you might want one of these! Alternatively, you can use your thumb to dig into the sore spots, but really, the armaid is worth every penny!!
