As common as lateral elbow pain may be, it can be an absolute nuisance to treat and live with. It doesn’t just affect and cause pain with a tennis backhand but also shaking hands, grabbing dishes, typing, gripping, writing, and you name it.

You can progress into isotonic exercises, meaning you are performing the exercise through a range of motion. As you feel comfortable you can further progress by using a load, shown here by using a dumbbell.  Wrist Extensor Stretch. Follow along with this video for 2 great stretches.
