    By soap notes, I assume you mean the memnonic S.O.A.P which is used by a lot of medical and paramedical professions to organize the way the chart is written
    S (subjective). What the patient complains of. "my arm hurts when I do this.

    O (objective) what you find on exam. "tenderness over the lateral epicondyle exacerbated by pronation against resistance"

    A (assessment) basically your diagnosis…"tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis"

    P (plan) the course of treatment. "rest, ice, antiinflammatories, physiotherapy"

    I have the same thing and for years didn’t know what to do. Found out to stay away from peppers of all kinds and acid foods like tomato’s. She will need to drink more water to flush her system and find an use naproxen, but remember the water.
    Naproxen is in a group of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Naproxen works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.

    Naproxen is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tendinitis, bursitis, gout, or menstrual cramps

    Only you can write the soap notes depending on what you found in the clients condition and what massage you did where etc.

    Most arm and hands things also have a big relationship to the alignment of the neck and shoulder.
