    Speaking for myself, massage had very little beneficial effect for more than an hour or two. It was just a waste of time and money for me.

    I had it quite serious a couple of years ago. I couldn’t even use the little screw drivers we use all day without a lot of pain , and many adjustments to metal frames with our small tools became almost impossible to do.

    I started wearing a wide elastic sports support strap on the forearm which helped a lot to get through the day , but eventually it wasn’t enough either, so I ended up getting a cortisone shot right in the elbow joint. Talk about pain for a few hours after !

    But after about 2 weeks, the original joint pain stopped and I have been free of it for over 2 years now.

    I had developed it from repetitive strain after doing the same strenuous movements with the same tools for over 35 years. I know many in this business end up with the same problem in the elbow.
