Hyperextended Arm


6 Months ago I was sparing (boxing) with my trainer. I threw a straight right and missed my target.
I felt my arm go beyond its natural range of motion. A sharp pain near my elbow has been bothering me since.
I attempted to stretch it out before each training session. As long as I keep the power lever on my straight right at 50% then I’m OK.
What might have happened?
I only feel pain when I throw the straight right and miss my target.
I could actually go 90% with my straight right as long as I hit my target.
I simply can’t extend my arm all the way like I used to. Could I have torn something?
If not, what type of exercises would help heal this problem? My last question is are there any supplements out there that can help in the healing process or the prevention of this problem?
