Arm pain: Overview & self-treatment

Not only can arm pain considerably limit your daily life, often they are suffered through for months.

Often the initiators for that pain can be found in overburdened muscles – in muscles of your arms as well as in muscles which are not even directly connected to your arms; even if the causes can be manifold.

Intensive gripping motions, strength training, gardening or work around the house, as well as using a mouse and computer keyboard for extended periods of time can overstress your muscles.

The result can be tension and trigger points, which themselves initiate pain.

You can deactivate your trigger points and eliminate excessive muscle tension with a self-massage, which in turn can alleviate your pain.

Below you will find detailed instructions on how to do a self-massage that will relieve certain kinds of arm pain.
