Your triceps seem to be the forgotten muscle when talking about foam rolling and myofascial release. When we look at shoulder problems, we have spoken about working through the latissimus dorsi and the teres minor with the foam roller. This is great and will help to relieve a lot of shoulder pain, but accompany it with a few minutes of work on the triceps as well. Tight and aggravated tricep muscles can attribute to shoulder pain, considering that the attachment is right in the shoulder. Check out this picture.
The tricep works at the shoulder joint and helps with adduction of the arm, which is bringing it back to the body. The main movement of the tricep is elbow extension, thus if you are suffering from some elbow pain, the triceps might be a good starting point to look at. Here is a video showing you how to foam roll your triceps. You can also use a tennis ball or a golf ball for greater pressure in the area.
