Decrease Elbow Pain and Improve Motion For Ease With Building A Frame For BJJ

In this video, Chewy asked about some issues he has had with his elbow. When he was in a bottom guard position, his training partner put pressure on the arm causing the elbow to bend into a painful range. Chewy also explained that he has had difficulty with getting the elbow to bend fully as well as getting into a defensive position in the elbow when he was performing stand-up/MMA.
I assessed Chewy and we get into the elbow and surrounding tissue to loosen up and stretch any of the muscle and ensure that the elbow joint is moving properly and not tight.
Check this video out and use it as a reference to get some ideas on how to deal with elbow pain for BJJ.
Make sure to get assessed by a medical professional for safety.
