After an evaluation of
shoulder and elbow I explained that the real problem was muscle
imbalances surrounding Andy’s shoulder. The muscle imbalances
in structural changes caused by muscle weakness and muscle tightness.
This imbalance caused joint restrictions and the need to compensated
during specific movement patterns such as the serve and ground strokes.
In this case Andy’s elbow was hurting because of the above
then proceeded to treat some of the joint restrictions by with soft
tissue mobilization techniques and developed a specific strengthening
program to improve performance.Key
stability, movement patterns, soft tissue mobilization techniques.
