GRIP STRENGTH 👋🏼 [Nerve Mobilization]
Happy Monday Everyone! So what even are nerves? We know they send the signals throughout our body to various muscles which helps them to contract.
Like our muscles, the nerves need to have proper mobility (called neurodynamics) throughout our body in order for the signals to be sent efficiently. When we have injuries (inflammation) and postural deviations what we end up with are restrictions due to mechanicals pressures placed upon our nerves. .
Here is a quick post today about mobilizing the ulnar nerve which can often get restricted in its movement. The medial intramuscular septum is a space where the ulnar nerve passes through, right near the biceps. The nerve may not move well so we have to loosen things up 🕺This can often present as something called Cubital Tunnel Syndrome which is RIGHT near the elbow itself. .
I’ve made posts before about grip strength and how the ulnar nerve affects it overall. So just simply try rolling out that area with a lacrosse ball! Nothing fancy. Just target 🎯 just up from the inside of the elbow to about halfway to the shoulder. .
⚠️ It May be pretty sensitive so be aware!
Tag someone with 💩 grip strength! .
