Dean Mineall is an elite up and coming pistol shooter. During 2011, hours spent on the pistol range caused an overuse strain of the extensor carpi radialis muscle located on the back of the forearm. It was a very localised and specific pain that become worse when his thumb gripped the pistol.
It went on for months and got to the stage that it was difficult for Dean to even hold a cup. He treated it with everything he knew – trigger point therapy, laser therapy, soft tissue mobilisation and dry needling. Treatment would help immediately but the pain returned as soon as he recommenced training.
