What is the assisted forearm-rotation strengthening exercise?

Rick Olderman
Physical Therapy
The assisted forearm-rotation strengthening exercise restores normal range of motion and strength to the pronator and supinator muscles of the forearm. It's important to restore proper strength to the rotator muscles through the entire range of motion, especially for people who work with their hands or athletes such as golfers. This will help prevent a recurrence of elbow pain.
