Healthy blood flow
When it comes to tennis elbow, people think that treating it locally will solve the problem. So, they massage the elbow or wear a brace, but nothing gets rid of the pain. The reason is that there are underlying muscle imbalances in the wrists, shoulder and upper back that are putting too much stress on the extensors in the forearm that attach to the outer bone in the elbow, called the lateral epicondyle.
First, we have to gently and carefully get the elbow to relax a little bit, because it’s closed off and in a painful lockdown. So, we’re going to end that red alert and create some space in there, so it can start to safely open back up.
Then, we are going to improve circulation and flood the elbow with healthy blood and nutrients to dramatically improve the speed and quality of the healing process. There are a wide variety of essential vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients that improve your body’s ability to reduce inflammation and pain, while regenerating healthy tissue and muscle.
In addition to healthy blood, we also want to flood the elbow with powerful immune cells called Macrophages (Greek for “Big Eater”). These amazing immune cells literally gobble up and remove the waste and debris and are also responsible for regenerating healthy tissue.
The simple, but powerful rehab techniques in the MALIN METHOD significantly increases the flow of Macrophages, healthy blood and essential nutrients to help you heal faster & better.
Eliminate swelling & debris
A second and very critical set of techniques is required to help the body’s lymphatic system eliminate swelling and harmful waste from your elbow. If you do NOT help your body along in this process, swelling can take a very long time to go down on it’s own.
To make matters worse, the body can accumulate scar tissue in the elbow, which can cause it to shrink and tighten. That can cause long term damage, including arthritis and chronic elbow pain.
We are going to show you effective techniques to break up scar tissue and remove swelling from the elbows as well as any harmful waste and debris.
Muscle regeneration and repair
After an injury, the elbow becomes very weak and unstable. And remember, elbows CANNOT heal on their own, so unless you do something about it, they will stay that way.
First of all, let’s talk about the wrist… Think about what happens when you squeeze a tennis racquet for a long time… the inside part of your forearm flexes and gets stronger, while the outside of your forearm eventually gets pulled and extended, which weakens it.
To make matters worse, most of us tend to sit too long or hunch over computers, tablets and phones, etc. with our shoulders rounded forward. Rounded shoulders internally rotate and create over-pronation of the forearm (your arm twists inward), which will stretch the extensors on the outside of the forearm, creating even more weakness. And this will make things even worse, since it creates even more muscle imbalance between the wrist extensors and flexors.
Not only that… rounded shoulders mean a weak upper and middle back, which translates into an inability to correctly decelerate the motion of movements that are very common in tennis, football or baseball.
Step 3 will rebuild the muscles all around the elbows, step by step, in order to significantly increase strength, stability and healthy range of motion. Unlike the random exercises you may find on the internet, this is a complete rehab system of the best stretches, exercises and much more.
You can expect PAIN FREE, strong, stable elbows with improved natural movement and a much lower risk of re-injury without braces, wraps or tape.
