Does anyone know anything about Tennis Elbow?

About a month ago, I was diagnosed w/ Tennis Elbow. I have done the band, the RICE, everything. While most of the pain is gone, I still have one spot that is still hurting and, consequently, preventing me from doing things the way I used to. I dont even know how I got this. It is really becoming annoying. I have looked at all the websites and have done EVERYTHING. What else can I do?

Serious replys only please. I am severely right handed and this is really interferring w/ my life.

Thanks

    Rest helps, with avoidance of the activities which over use the elbow.

    Physiotherapy treatments, which may include heat or ultrasound therapy.

    Use of anti inflammatory drugs and ordinary pain killers (analgesics).

    Your doctor may suggest an injection of a small dose of steroid to the affected area. This is not the sort of steroid banned for athletes. If used it can last for up to three months, and although it may need to be repeated you seldom need more than two or possibly three injections.

    You can buy a brace from a sports shop or pharmaceutical supplier, which can be helpful. This is probably largely because it reduces the amount you can use your elbow.

    Hope this helps =]

    Hi, my Mum has this and she wears a sling whenever possible to rest her arm, she says it helps. Good luck.

    See a neuro-muscular massage therapist.

    They have done what no doctor or chiropractor sould ever do for me.

    (You’re lucky its only tennis ELBOW. I knew a guy that had Tennis balls!)

    My husband had it too. He ended up getting a shot of cortisone. That was 14 years ago, and it’s never come back.

    I never had but two people that I know have. One seems to have gotten over it after a couple of years but the other has been bothered for more than ten years now. Most likely will never get over it.

    Sure glad I don’t have it.
    Hope it is much less for you. Good luck.
