If you are suffering from arm pain, you came to the right place. You will learn about its most common causes and what to do to get relief.
I want to give you one important tip ahead.
Never give up and persist. I had pain in my arms and it took me years to recover from it because so few therapists know about the things you will read here on Painotopia. Still, over time I found the information I needed and made it.
Just imagine, at some point it was even too much for me to grab a cup out of the dish washer! But I never really wanted to accept that, and I am glad I never did. Now I am in control of my body and I do not hold on to a cup but onto very small crimps in rock climbing. And I enjoy it a lot as I feel no more pain in my arms.

Of course the same applies to ALL exercises - massage, relaxation, stretching, etc. -. Always listen to your bodies reactions and adjust the training to fit your needs.
