Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the lining of joints and possibly internal organs. The result can be joint pain, swelling, inflammation and loss of function. The elbow is commonly affected in people with RA. And in this case, elbow arthritis, the most likely cause of it is a repetitive strain injury called tennis elbow.

When you suffer from elbow arthritis, there is a dramatic change (decrease) in the range of motion of your elbow and arm. Due to this decrease, your forearm muscles begin to shorten, are less flexible and become weak. Rheumatoid Arthritis (sometimes known as RA) as it affects the elbow can come on unexpectedly and with a vengeance, or it may start out slowly and build to something you can’t manage. How Does RA Affect the Elbow? RA is a chronic inflammatory disease.

It causes inflammation, swelling, and pain to many joints of the body.

  • Hey doctor your videos are very fascinating, But I am confused here I got this pain when I sit on study table resting my forearm but slightly the side part of my elbow is also testing on the table and when I keep that position for some time the pain starts in that portion acquired by a bit of tricep pain also.
    What it could be, please help me out.
    Thanks and love all over from India.����

  • Total fail. There’ was no explanation as how to Treat Elbow Arthritis like the video title says. Dude says..There’s nothing we can do, go get it checked out…Nice.

  • Very helpful. Never realised you could curl your fingers round when stretching 4:30, that helps hugely as i could never get that stretch well in the past. Thanks <3

  • I strrtched both hands at once, which felt fine to me. Have had PT when I had a wrist fracture and 1 yrs earlier other side elbow fracture. I broke 2 falls in 2 yrs each time with different hand. Now have thumb arthritis, predominantly in left but feel it in right also. I wasn’t sure if exercise was okay for this as I had heard it might make it worse? Is that inaccurate? Had a shot in left but it didn’t work. Follow up next week.

  • Hi, Doctor
    Thanks for the video first of all…. i just got my plaster removed today and my elbow isn’t bending all the way to the back or all the way straight.. is it because of the stiffness from a 3 week cast at a 90 degree angle.. will these exercises help get my arm back to normal or do i need any other streches?

  • Doc. Jo, I am from Philippines and I just want to ask you if what should we do because I think my mother has rheumatoid arthritis but I’m not sure about it and some of the early symptoms are leading to RA. I don’t know what to do. Can you help us? Can you suggest any treatment or anything that we must do? I hope you can help us, Doc. Jo. Thank you.

  • Thank you. Two doctors and 12 months later, I finally know what’s wrong and have a way to treat it. Stretches already working and I’m going to be sure to do them before and after work every day.

  • are these still good to do after tenex surgery on the elbow? i had my surgery about 2 months ago, and still have pain, hard to pick up anything or use it like i did before, burning sensations. my dr. stated this is normal could take 8-10 months to get back to normal. but guessing should cont with doing some kinds of stretching or exercises,

  • mam i want to ask some question about myself if u dont mind…

  • Thank you thank you thank you doctor Jo… for this exercises i have lots of pain in my elbow but now I am feeling more comfortable very easy exercises and very effective great video ever

  • Excellent Video! Forgive me for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you researched Mackorny Tennis Play Blueprint (do a search on google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for Eliminating Tennis Elbow Pain without the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my mate at very last got astronomical success with it.

  • Hi hi, is it possible to straiten up my finguers? my natural position of my finguers are a bit strange. They go strait to the first joint (naturaly it’s just one bone) but then it goes down to the second joint, and then up to the tip of the finguer. Basicaly they make a “z”.

  • I have severe arthritis (degenerative joint disease) on my lower back which is impinging on the nerves triggering pain and neuropathy in my feet. This arthritis treatment method “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) really does work! I used it for my feet, I`ve used it in my neck, elbows and hands. It continues to amaze me!.

  • Quick question, doing the stretch going straight out with the arm and moving your fingers downward, this does stretch for me, but should I also move the fingers up, when I do move my wrist upward, it is very painful at the elbow.

  • I don’t have arthritis and am only 16 but as an artist and junior in high-school, I constantly use my wrist and right hand throughout the day so I’m doing these exercises to prevent arthritis lol

  • Dealing with arthritis is just something my spouse and I believed we would have to learn to live with. That was before we tried the arthritis treatment solution “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it). This technique is, certainly, the great thing we`ve ever discovered for pains and aches, both minor and severe..

  • I’ve been struggling with this for months. Probably the only dude here that got it from a machete though. Anyway I didn’t realize I was doing the stretch wrong until I saw this. It already feels WAY better thank you!

  • The arthritis treatment solution “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is among the ideal things I`ve ever tried. My condition included fractured spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. I have used this during the winter and when my big toe knuckle gets painful due to wearing shoes. I`ve tried out plenty of items. Hip issues are difficult to deal with, however this product helps make the process easier..

  • Oh my gosh I can’t believe these simple stretches helped my elbow pain go away within minutes! You saved my basketball season and weightlifting training

  • Had this issue a few years ago and needed a refresher on the exercises. After one set I already feel a difference. Thank you! Cute doggo, too!

  • Hi doctor jo i really appreciate your time and advice. Is there any tip in us determining whether the hand numbness/ weakness is associated with carpal tunnel or arthritis? I know the two are so similar it’s hard to know. Thank you so much for these videos. I have been struggling with numbness for about a year almost. Do you also recommend vitamins?

  • Hi Doctor Jo! I’ve been doing these exercises for a month (from your 2016 video) and I’m soooo grateful for it! I have seen remarkable improvement, so: thanks a lot!

    The thing is it still hurts when I swing my racquet, particularly on the backhand, so I’m afraid to start playing again. What other exercises can I do? do I keeep doing these until the pain goes away completely? I have changed the size of the hammer a couple of times ’cause I don’t feel any discomfort when doing these, except with the fist-down stretch… that still stings a little. Thanks again for what you do!

  • My Absolute Recovery From Rheumatoid arthritis With Traditional Herbal Medication.

    Hello. I’m James. It was a sad experience for me after I had found out I had been diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis. At first at the realization of the news, I was taken aback because I had never wanted to be in a position that would be difficult to handle. It was of some sad oddity to even realize that the pharmaceutical medication that was recommended was not favorable to me at all. My finger outlines were deformed and as I was hurt every single moment, the pain was unbearable and I was desperately in search of a permanent remedy to get rid of this dreadful disease called arthritis. I was soon to deviate another alternative in improving my condition naturally.

    It was during my ceaseless search for a definite remedy that I stumbled across the professional works of Dr. Harry Obiego an African herbal practitioner and natural healer whose works had surrounded natural herbs and their benefits from mostly Dr. Sebi’s theory and who had completely saved me from Rheumatoid arthritis. An information was passed online of his professional experience in healing most incurable ailments via a naturopathic process. The content of the information had elaborated that the process of his healing was traditionally and naturally oriented and that the aforementioned herbalist had successfully cured a number of victims from most viral ailments such as Arthritis, Asthma-related problems, erectile dysfunction, paralysis, hepatitis B, lupus, and many other medical conditions via traditional methods of healing.

    For proper understanding and guidelines, I had contacted this African herbalist with whose professional directions and his recommendations I was able to receive my healing naturally without any side effects at all and under only a little period of time.

    I wish to use this opportunity to reach out to any person who by faith may stumble across this piece of information and who may be facing any health challenges currently, to hopefully reach out to this natural herbal healer for assistance in battling their health problems. I would highly recommend this African doctor’s herbal medication to anyone battling any viral disease for proper medication in improving their conditions.

    You can reach this herbal doctor via his email: [email protected] gmail.com

  • you’re more like batgirl than super girl.. you got the brains.. what i like about you is you give people ” options ” like people who are forced to live a life on opoids like hydrocodine because it doesnt get stronger you concur defintley

  • You can get arthritis gloves reasonable here https://www.shopatronics.com/products/one-pair-arthritis-gloves-open-finger-arthritis-gloves

  • Thank you Dr Jo..I have Tennis elbow and it hurts so bad. These excercises helped me right away. HOw often per day should I do this? Also could you help me w. an excercise so that my wrist/hand doesn’t hurt so much when riding my motorcycle. Thanks again.

  • My elbow had broken and a surgery was done with impants those were removed 6 yrs back but my elbow moves only 90degree I want fully movement wht to do

  • Hi Dr. Jo, I’ve been using the Theraband bar (Red) for 3 days now using Tyler twists for LE of my right elbow. My affected elbow is now sore from the work out. Question: should I take a break for a day or so until the soreness goes away, or should I keep doing the Tyler twists every day for the entire treatment period?

  • Hello. Thank you for this info and for making us laugh at the end. Fun is also important part of treatment. I suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome 21 years ago. It was doe to repetitive action at my work, not eating enough food, passing my whole work time with a fruit and a vitamin shake, which gave energy to work even with an empty stomach. I was able to escape from surgery by researching how the people cured themselves. I was given the opportunity to changed the type of work from cashier to a floral arrangement specialist and I love it. It took me a year I recover.
    I studied life styles and foods diet that other people have done in the case. No dairy products, no nitrated meats, no sugar, no fried food, no gluten food Ect. I did exercises 2/week and went to Drs. too. So, l passed 21 years in good health. And now the hands are imflammed. Maybe arthritis is a like dormant sickness would comes back when we are not taking good care of us, and specially when we get old. Is that true Dr? I just never give up and I keep searching for natural remedies and many of them are working. One of them warm Castor oil massage and rapping after to live overnight. I did 3 nights in a row and I saw good results. It is a detoxification process. I would continue going to the gym more often for yoga and dancing. As after retirement the house keeping is a never ending story, I would have to scheduled brakes in my routines and not skipping meals. There would be a lot of search and practice to leave a healthy life after retirement. My hands would be OK. It is a long process but some people in my road would need it too. Thank a lot.

  • I have tissue tears on my elbow and i work as a nursing assistant. It gets worse when i go to work. Right now i am on leave of absence but i was told that recovery takes a long time and yes it does. Today is my follow up and the only improvement so far is i can now straighten my left elbow and lift like 8 lbs but still am in pain. Before i cannot straighten it at all and i cant even lift a can of soda. I needed more weeks off since my job demands me to use my arms in different positions for lifting. I hope he will give it to me as i do not want to cause more injury. Also found out that on both knees, my patellar tissues are deteriorating, no wonder i have a hard time standing up for too long without rest and my inner knee would hurt so much even when resting. So i hope he will take care of that as well and give me more weeks off to recover properly.

  • Dr. Jo, I had surgery on 3 trigger fingers on my right hand and am trying to get my grip back. My Index finger has a permanent bend and will not straighten out. When I put the two middle fingers together I have about a 1/2″ gap at the base. I am wondering which video on stretches or exercises you would recommend I watch and follow.

  • Hi i would like to ask if what treatment do i do to my elbow the scenario is when i shoot a basketball and over extend may arm some part of my inner elbow getting hurt everytime i over extend it..

  • I`ve got serious arthritis (degenerative joint disease) on my lower back which is impinging on the nerves triggering pain and neuropathy in my feet. This arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) really does work! I applied it for my feet, I have tried it in my neck, elbows and hands. It continues to impress me!.

  • So if exercise doesn’t hurt at all (but without exercise during some motions I have some sharp, stabbing pain, about for 9 months now ) should I do that?

  • Hello I am in a lot of pain even after my injection. How many times per day do I do these exercises and for how many days or week?

  • Thanks for making this video. I mostly work on my computer (around 8 hours x 5 days a week min) and I’ve been experiencing pain and discomfort in my fingers from typing. This is really helping while I’m waiting to see a doctor, it always felt small enough to not bother seeing one, but I feel I need to now.

  • Hi Dr. Jo. Thank you so much for your awesome videos!!! I wanted to ask…when I am resting my elbow, should I keep my arm in a bent position or keep it straight.

  • I had to wait 6 months for a physio appointment and they just told me to do these exercises. By which time the injection had worn off… Should have come here first!

  • I really like this arthritis treatment solution “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it)! I`ve had arthritis on my hands and joints for many years, and this item truly helps to relieve a few of the pain. I personally use it regularly, not always every day depending upon how my joints feel, but I liberally spread this on my fingers and hands and within an hour they`re feeling much better.

  • I had x rays done because I had all the symptoms of golfers elbow and x rays show that I have arthritis. Which is fine I am 41 years old I also have arthritis on both my knees. From years and years of being active working out lifting weights ect…I can handle arthritis, this feels different, this feels like a tendon in my elbow is either inflamed or partially tear. I am going back to my doctor and request an MRI and see if it’s a tendon.

  • I tried this type of exercise but I got lots pain in my fingers.
    too much of swelling my middle finger it is good or not please give reply.

  • hey doc, I’ve been experiencing sharp elbow pain and popping whenever I extend my elbow. It only hurts and pops on the outside of my elbow when I fully extend my arm. Not when I lift anything or make a fist or raise my hand. It started hurting after I threw about 60 pitches of whiffle ball a week ago. I’ve been resting it since, but there hasn’t been much improvement. I often wake up in the middle of the night and instinctively straighten my arm, and this makes it pop and hurt the most, and today it has been the worst during the day since the day after I got injured. The weird thing is, whenever I go through the throwing motion, it doesn’t hurt. Do you know what causes this and any ways of treating it (like stretches or exercises)? I’ve been researching around and the closest thing I found to it is a UCL injury, or maybe olecranon bursitis (which I don’t think it is because there isn’t much swelling).

  • Per the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health: “Systemic mycoplasmal infections may be an important cofactor in the pathogenesis of RA, and their role needs to be explored further.”

  • On the elbow stretch in which you curl your fingers for an extra stretch, my pinkie was locked in that position for about a minute after the exercise. I have recurring wrist injuries and I did feel a small sharp pain in my forearm. Is this a safe exercise for me to do?

  • Sorry I don’t wanna start with saying something negative.. but I am crying right now. My mom has osteoarthritis.. and I know how much pain she goes through.. I don’t wan to suffer from the same.. but my knee pains alot. I took meds but still nothing works.. I keep crying.. but I don’t know what to do. Please help.

  • Hello, maybe you can help.  I have sharp elbow pain sometimes when I’m wearing my motorcycle jacket, bend my left arm, and my elbow rubs against the elbow pads/armor.  I don’t have any limited range of motion, but I am diabetic (type II) which I’m not sure if that matters, but it’s probably worth mentioning.  I don’t believe I’ve damaged the elbow to my recollection.  When I lift weights, it’s light weights, I do occasional arm curls, press weight bar over my head, beyond that, not much.  I haven’t played tennis or done any sports in awhile.  I just can’t think of anything that could have brought this on, which is why I thought being middle aged that maybe it could be arthritis.  Since I don’t have any restrictions on range of motion, I’m thinking maybe bursitis?   This symptom has lingered for probably a couple weeks now.  I don’t ice my elbow and I haven’t felt the same issue in my right elbow, so far.

  • I`ve tried several treatment solution for my arthritis joint pain, but the arthritis treatment method “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) surfaces them all. It`s a wonder. Even when I am aged, I still perform a lot of gardening work in South Florida that involves lifting and carrying bags of fertilizer and soil, pruning, harvesting, and more..

  • Hey doctor, I get Triceps Tendon Inflammation. My elbow pain when pushing up lower than 120 angle. So I prefer to stop pushing up.

    I perform Cable Pushdown to strength my triceps in order to recover.
    my arm from 100 angle to straight armno elbow pain
    my arm from 90 angle to straight armsometimes elbow pain
    my arm from 80 angle to straight armelbow must pain
    I afraid 100 angle is not bend enough. I afraid It cannot strength triceps. Bending more can let triceps recover much better?

  • Not sure if I have arthritis in my hands but I’m going to try this. I work with my hands all day at work and they are sore all the time. Hopefully this works for me. Thank you for the advice.

  • Thank you. The cold weather has my arthritis hurting even more and none stop. I was going to take a muscle relaxer tonight but just doing these exercises once has brought my pain level from an 8 to a 4.

  • Thank you, Dr. Jo. Those are simple, effective exercises. Does playing a musical instrument help keep joints on your hands free of bone spurs? Does knitting? Cheers.

  • I did the exercises and felt relief in my hands almost instantly. Been suffering from arthritis for many years but only now have begun to do exercises for this condition. I ask myself why on earth did I wait this long? Better late than never, that’s for sure. Folks, if you suffer from arthritis, please do an exercise program immediately. You will be glad you did so! ��

  • Hey thanks so much for the advice! I’ve had my injury since Sept/Oct ’19, and started doing these exercises the past few days. I know everyone’s different, but do you think a longer term injury like mine will benefit? My work I think may be hindering my progress! Many thanks:)

  • When I do the end joint finger exercise they start to talk back,”stop wiggling me you idiot or I’ll poke you in the eye,” Ha! Ha! Thanks Dr. Jo you too cool.

  • Does this work to relieve pain or discomfort from carpal tunnel syndrome or is there another set of exercises which are more helpful?

  • Wow thank you! Im self treating right now as my wife is not working during this COVID scare and we dont currently have healthcare. I only have one hand so its super bad for me, this legit helped after 4 days of not being able to type for work or even open a door knob. I still have a lot of pressure and stiffness under my thumb, any exercises for that? THANKS AGAIN!

  • I tried to do some of those finger stretches and it was hard, turns out my skin is very stiff and dry, so I tried to do them today with some moisturizer it helped a lot! my fingers were very bendy and had no problem what so ever:) thanks Dr jo.

  • I want to testify about how I cured of Herpes Virus,. Back to months I have some symptoms of rash and blister packs in my private section. I went to see a doctor and did various tests on me, later I was told that I had Genital Herpes. My doctor told me there was no cure for genital herpes, I felt sick. I went online looking for a possible cure for herpes virus, I saw the contribution of Dr. Eseigbe, a herbal doctor who helps people cure HIV, HEPATITIS B,Cancer interventions SIMPLEX. I contacted him immediately and told him how I felt he said his herbal remedy could cure. He sent me the medicine through DHL Courier Service and I got the medicine 5 days after he sent it, I took the medicine as prescribed. Symptoms stopped before treatment was completed. Dried rashes and blisters. I went to the doctor and ran another blood test, surprisingly negative. I had no more symptoms. Dr. Eseigbe is a great man and his herbal remedy has no side effects.

  • This helps, but my biggest issue is the swelling at the joint where my pointer finger joins the hand. I believe they call this the Carpmetacarpal joint? Is there anything I can do to alleviate the swelling which causes pain? It is to a degree that stops me from practicing the guitar, but it gives a perfect excuse for why my playing is so atrocious!

  • Hi. The doctor I visit recomended to put a wrist splint and an elbow tape becouse of the tennis elbow I suffer. In this case, can we think that these precautions are to prevent the moves of my injured arm? So do you thing that the exercise you shared on the video would be usefull also for me? What would you recomend for me?

  • Just wonderful, I’ve been looking for “pain medicine for osteoarthritis” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Hanadelyn Banadison System (do a google search )?

    It is a great exclusive product for discovering how to get rid of arthritis minus the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my m8 got excellent success with it.

  • When I was 12 my left hand was fractured below my elbow, can you please suggest some exercise to reduce stifness because it is a bit stiff till now

  • Thank you for this video Dr. Joe. It is really excellent. I do have a question. How many times a week can I do these exercises specifically the ones that involve a weight and hammer?

  • I have been suffering tennish elbow pain for last three month but now i relieved little when i followed your exercise so how long i do this exercise for completely recovered.

  • Hello! I’ve been recovering worm a wrist sprain with going to physiotherapy but at this point they found tennis elbow and the bone on top (between wrist and hand) is too curved as well. Do u think I need to modify any of these considering the problem with the curved bone?

  • Hey so I think I might have rheumatoid arthritis. To anyone who has it: Do you get tingling in your hands,fingers,and elbow from it? I wore a wrist brace for many weeks trying to get rid of carpal tunnel, and then dequervains, and cubital tunnel. Nothing I’ve done has helped me and although I’m finally gonna have an appointment to see what I might have been dealing with for 6 months, I have pain in a lot of my joints but I’m not sure if that effects my nerves. I literally have symmetrical jaw pain,hand pain, finger pain,wrist pain,elbow pain, knee pain, and my feet burn when I stand for long. I’m just afraid my doc might not take me seriously because some symptoms don’t make sense or something.
