The Extensor Muscles of the wrist and forearm are found on the backhand side (opposite the palm side).  If you pretend like you are revving a motorcycle, you will feel the Flexor Muscles and tendons ball up in the forearm.  Unlike the FLEXOR TENDONS on the opposite side of the arm, the extensor tendons are not really related to Carpal Tunnel SyndromeHowever, they are highly related to a form of Elbow Tendinosis called LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS (Tennis Elbow).






Don’t leave this page without understanding the critical difference between Tendinitis and Tendinosis (HERE).
