Important note: Arm pain is very often related to shoulder pain or to a dysfunction of the shoulder muscles. This is why you will perform lots of shoulder exercises in order to get rid of your arm pain.  


Guidelines


The exercise guidelines got already discussed in the shoulder exercise section. As they also apply to arm exercises, I recommend to read through them real quick and then to come back here. It will just take a minute.


Relaxation Exercises


These exercises will mainly work the muscles of your wrists, elbows and shoulders. They will help you to eliminate excessive muscle tension, which is a major cause of muscle and joint pain.


The arm relaxation exercises contain massage exercises as well as little coordination and hold-release techniques. If by now you are a bit confused, I recommend to read my article about relaxation exercises. It will inform you about how they work and why they are so important. It will really deepen your understanding of what you are actually doing here. This in turn will make the exercises even more effective.
