“Why is it taking so long to heal?” is one of the most common Tennis Elbow treatment-oriented questions I’m asked – both online and in my practice. Why is it that some Tennis Elbow injuries take only weeks to recover from – while others take months or even years? And is there a way to avoid this and speed up your recovery?
When you have Tennis Elbow you’ll hear that “You should rest it” – But is this really the best treatment advice? Learn why tendons don’t necessarily heal while you’re resting, hoping and waiting – And too much rest = RUST.
Most “authorities” recommend that you wear some kind of brace or support when you have Tennis Elbow, supposedly to help it heal – However, this video explains why these supports can easily have the opposite effect on healing. Why braces are NOT a good treatment for Tennis Elbow!
One of the most commonly recommended treatments for Tennis Elbow is ice therapy, but will treating your Tennis Elbow according to this often-repeated wisdom actually help you HEAL?
What’s the best treatment or remedy for Tennis Elbow? Do those anti-inflammatory pills help? How about icing? Braces and bands?… What about Cortisone shots?
More importantly, do these “treatments” help your healing process – Or do they basically just mask your pain and other symptoms? (Is there a better way?)
