How to Heal, Get Rid of Your Arm Pain and Tendinitis

Overuse injuries are particularly common in high-performing athletes and musicians. This article focuses on reducing and eliminating forearm pain, inflammation and tendinitis. A while back, I promised you a guide for how you can deal with these problems, so here it is! I tried to keep it concise and informative. Remember, this is based on my personal experience and I am by no means a doctor, so just as a disclaimer, you are applying these methods at your own risk. That being said, I have dealt with tendinitis for many years and have experimented with a multitude of different methods and techniques for overcoming over it. Much of my experience is not covered in this short guide. For further detail or personal questions, feel free to email me at JazzPianoConcepts@gmail.com.
