Just been reading Pinki's thread about her back and the advice you gave her, am wondering whether Tai chi exercises would benefit my OH. He's had a pain in his right arm for a while now, been to doc's,had blood taken,had painkillers and now he's having physio once a fortnight. Nothing seems to be helping, Doc thinks its a trapped nerve,pain seems to move up the arm rather than down, any suggestions would be appreciated, and dont worry wont blame you if his arm drops off.

Am an amateur, ok ?

Try clasping hands in front of chin with bent elbows. Swing above head & down slowly x 4. More if it eases pain.

Tai Chi is great for backs etc.
If you have a look here on their website, you can probably find classes near you.

^^swing bent arms above head, then over left & right shoulder x 2. It brings nerves & tendons back in line.

No bother, bloomwood. It's a while before the improvements show, but it definitely works.

(And the classes are very enjoyable.)
