Can anyone tell me a sure fire way to eliminate my tennis elbow?

I’ve been trying to get rid of it for about 2 years. It has destroyed my MMA training and almost put me out of work. It has gotten better some but it seems so prone to re injury. I have pain in both elbows with a crunching sound in the right when I flex. All the Doc did is give me antinflammatories. Anyone recovered from this? How?

    amputation, wont have worry about after that.

    try stretch out your wrist after the workout, your wrist controls the muscle that has the tendinitis, by bending your wrist you will stretch out that muscle.
    also they sell a air pad for this to in stores like cvs, basically its a air bubble pad on a strap, it will keep pressure on it an help the swelling to go down.

    this can be caused by several different joints or movements mine was caused by my shoulder. you should try and figure out what is causing it and correct it. it could be something as simple as your posture or the way you hold your arm.

    Rest, stretching, icing, balming

    shihan is on the right track. no doubt there is a deficency somewhere in your body, and most likely it has crept around maybe up towards your shoulder and neck as your body makes up for this. so strength and flexibility is the problem and although stretching your wrists and forearms is a good start you are going to want to stretch your entire body, especially your upper body for a few weeks. look for aches and pains you didn’t realize you had. take some rest if you need it and especially if it flares up. pushing through pain here is the wrong thing. i always choose ice over pills, and ice can really help keep more scar tissue from building which is inflexible at best. lastly you need to find the cause for this because if you don’t then it’ll just keep getting worse. typing? also the forearms and the wrist rarely rest even when you are relaxing. i used to grab my gf’s arm by the rest and the elbow and after a few moments of showing her how to relax them n my arms her carpal tunnel pain would subside. that and tennis elbow are closely related i believe. you can emulate this by resting your arm on a pillow that is high enough to be above your body. sometimes it simply can’t rest even when you sleep
