The rotator cuff is a group of four shoulder muscles that collectively move your arm in all directions as well as stabilize the shoulder joint.
Medial Epicondylitis, often called Little League Elbow. This condition presents from overuse of the elbow and is not associated with a traumatic event. Medial Epicondylitis typically causes pain and numbness with increased activity relieved by rest, but can become constant as the condition worsens.
You don’t need to be a tennis player to experience the pain and discomfort that comes with tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of your elbow becomes sore and tender.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is pain, numbness and/or tingling and other problems in your hand as a result of excessive pressure on the median nerve in your neck, armpit, forearm or wrist.
The Radial Nerve has six entrapment sites starting at the neck and moving down the arm. If the nerve is entrapped at one of these sites you will feel it in the back of the hand, thumb, and pointer finger.
The Ulnar Nerve has eight entrapment sites starting at the neck and then moving down the arm. Irritation of this nerve will give problems in the pinky finger and ring finger.
