“Why Is My Tennis Elbow Taking So Long To Heal?”
It’s 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 your recovery?
The simple fact is, Tennis Elbow is a tendon injury and tendons heal slowly, by nature.
I know it can be a challenging thing to face and accept when you’re in chronic pain, but that’s the truth.
Healing a tendon is not like healing muscle, skin or bone – which have rich blood supplies, which means faster healing.
That’s not to say you can’t recover a lot more quickly with the right treatment approach, though – You certainly can.
