Cure Tennis Elbow Archives
I workout a lot, but for the past 5 months i havent been consistent, but definitely about 3 times a week, i do pullups, and other things, i go to taekwondo where we workout vigrously and it invloves the arms a lot.
But about 2 and a half months a go i was doing pullups and i decided to hold the pullup at the top because, i felt the burn in my arms and stomach, so i did 3 sets of 1 min, and a bout a day later, my left elbow started to hurt when i bend it fully in and flex…
What could this be?
I stopped working out for about a month, but i started again about a week ago, and i dont drink a lot milk either(if it has anything to do with my elbow)
Lets just say I kept on doing the same activity that has caused the tennis elbow. I have been for 4 months since it has started. I do feel pain when I do activity still. Please no answers saying to rest, or other stupid answers.
What could happen? How can I still relieve the pain?
Ok I think I have a tennis elbow on my right arm which is my dominant I know I should stop playing tennis but I can’t and I could use my left hand so my question is I want to use western for my left but I use eastern for my right will my right hand suck when it recovers if I play western with my left.
I was working out and then I got tennis elbow andIi had to stop for about 2 months. My elbow’s have recovered enough that I rarely get any pain and I was wanting to come back to working out.
Can anyone help with a workout routine to get me started, what to do to avoid getting it again, and what rep ranges I need to use?
Appreciate all the help…
I don’t play tennis so I don’t have tennis elbow because of that, I think it’s because I always put my elbow on a desk and then put my head on my hand because I’m bored or something
So, how do I get rid of the tennis elbow pain right now??it only hurt a little before, but now it hurts so bad! I can’t bend it, and I can’t even touch it a little without it hurting….
So what should I do, besides ice and medicine? I’m already gonna use those
I use my arm alot and when I sleep my elbow stiffs up and the bone at the joint hurts when it is touched or bumped
Last year when I started snowboarding, I remember falling pretty hard on my wrist on the 1st day. It hurt but I managed to get back up and keet going, the pain eventually subsided and was bothersome for about a week but I thought I had just sprained it or something. Well, here I am a yr. later with pain in my wrist-still. It is nothing extreme, just sort of annoying. I can almost feel a "popping," when pressing in a certain area. I can feel it crack often(it cracks loud when I move it a certain way), and will get sharp pains from the outside of my wrist to the outside of my elbow. They are not extremely painful in any way, which is probably why it has been a year. I have started to experience tingling from the far side of my wrist up into my hand. Again, nothing more than annoying. However, it has me wondering- could I have fractured it without realizing it? I mean, I think I have a pretty high tolerance for pain, but could I have done something more than a sprain and now it has healed wrong? And if so, what am I supposed to do about it now? Should I have it checked by a doctor(X-ray) even if they might not be able to do anything? I’m starting tennis soon and am worried about it bothering me…
Are you in pain and need cure for tennis elbow? This article provides you with all the information you need to learn about this specific injury called tennis elbow. I know it hurts but trust me when I say that there are methods that will totally eliminate your pain and recover your arm’s full functionality.
Tennis elbow is a common injury that affects the normal functioning of the elbow. In this condition, the tendon at the elbow joint, that connects the forearm muscles to the arm bone, is damaged. The joint pain prevents the person from performing daily activities. Tennis elbow commonly occurs among manual laborers and sportspersons, and tennis players are especially at a higher risk of developing tennis elbow.
Jobs such as painting and plumbing can also cause tennis elbow. Great players like Sachin Tendulkar and Tim Henman have also suffered from tennis elbow but with the proper treatment, they have recovered completely. In about 75 percent of the cases, tennis elbow affected the dominant arm.
There are a number of treatment options available, which are considered a cure for tennis elbow. Treatments work best if the injured tendon is allowed proper rest by avoiding activities that involve the elbow. Anti-inflammatory medications are commonly prescribed for people suffering from tennis elbow. These medicines are available in oral form and can be easily taken to reduce inflammation and control pain. Cortisone injections are used when oral medicines fail. These injections can provide relief and decrease the pain.
Other techniques that have been useful for curing a tennis elbow are ultrasound therapy, acupuncture and deep tissue massage. Activity modifications, that do not put excessive pressure on the affected arm, are also recommended to accelerate the healing process.
Surgery is the last option when elbow pain does not subside even after taking rest for 6 to 12 months. This form of treatment is used when the tendon is seriously damaged. In such cases, even months of rest along with medications, does not help the cause. In the surgical procedure, the damaged tissue is removed from the tendon. However, surgery is rarely used in the treatment of tennis elbow. Less than 5% of the cases are recommended for surgery. Many a times, patients are completely cured by using non-surgical treatments.
People affected by a mild form of tennis elbow can apply an ice pack for around 10 to 20 minutes to reduce the pain and swelling. A cloth must be placed between the the ice and the skin, as direct contact can cause cold injuries. Ice sessions must be repeated after every couple of hours for optimum results. Medicines such as ibuprofen can also help relieve the symptoms. Wearing an arm brace is also beneficial for the patient, as it limits the movement of the tendon, redirects the muscle pull, thus providing relief to the injured tendon. Arm braces, also known as elbow braces, can be purchased from sports shops and pharmacies.
By doing some simple exercises, it is possible to control the symptoms of tennis elbow. Physiotherapy can provide a lot of relief and doctors may advice certain strengthening exercises to relieve the pain. In some cases, where surgery failed, exercises have helped cure tennis elbow.
Depending upon the severity of the injury, a specific mode of treatment is advised as a cure for tennis elbow. It is also necessary to prevent further injury to the elbow and perform activities as recommended by the doctor until the condition improves.

I was diagnosed with tennis elbow in both arms in May. The medications did not help. My doctor is now thinking it is not tennis elbow but rather has something to do with my herniated discs and spinal stenosis in my lower back . ( I have had that diagnosis for years, though it has never caused any issue with my arms.) He has referred me to a neurologist, but I couldn’t get an appointment until mid february. My question is this. My doctor ordered blood work. When the technician went to take my blood, it was like an electric shock went thru my arm and I yanked my arm away.I have had blood work several times in the past and never had a problem. Since that day of the failed lab work, I have a severe new pain in my pulse area of my wrist, whenever I reach my arm out. It is exactly where my pulse is in my wrist. Do I need to be concerned about this and call my doctor back?
Earlier today, I picked up my guitar and started playing, and immediately I started feeling pain on the muscle near (but not on) my elbow. I was feeling this on my picking hand. I noticed that the pain is worst whenever I move my fingers (in fact, I’m writing this with one hand). Could this be tennis elbow? And how can I treat it?
I have been having elbow pain for about a month now. It is getting better daily but it is also so annoying.
I got it by playing tennis. I dont really think its tennis elbow because its not the muslce that hurts its the actual elbow part(inner elbow, where for most of the people its weak).
It’s getting really annoying.

I just started my varsity year of baseball and my arm is starting to hurt bad. Right where my elbow is but on top and I found out it might be tenis elbow from throwing too much. Does anyone know a sleeve that can help prevent the pain? Please let me know!!
I have a sore elbow that appeared out of nowhere. Woke up with it one morning and it’s really bothering me. My left elbow is the one that’s sore, and I happen to have a mild case of cerebral palsy on my left side. Naturally because of my CP, I can’t use my left arm very much. I don’t know if I slept on it funny or did something to it without realizing it. Should I have any cause for concern?
The bump on my elbow is red and about the size of a dime. It is really sore and is swollen out a bit. Its on my right elbow and quite painful.
