Does anyone know a good routine for improving elbow tendinitis?

Starting to get pain in my upper forearm near the elbow when I do support grip movements

I've never gotten it there before.  Can you feel it when you do extensor work too?

I had really bad tendinitis early last year. I started working in regular extensor work with IM Bands and it hasn't come back since.

Make sure your training is balanced. Plenty of extensor work as said above. Warmth and manual massage to help it heal faster.

I do extensors regularly... I've been resting pretty much the whole week... It's not intense but I don't want it to get worse

Too much wrist thingy?  Inside or outside of the forearm?  Either way - roll it out with the "stick".  That usually works pretty well but the wrist thingy usually fixes mine up with supper light higher reps.  If it keeps up try some trigger point massage.

Thanks everyone  :)

Chris;

 

i don't think it was the wrist thingy - it hurts when i practice my 2hp techique with my 35s on a pipe with extra weight - the movement where i try to twist the plates and wrist curl backwards..

 

i will try a light high rep set with the wrist thingy tomorrow when i work and see if it helps

 

also, what do you mean by 'roll it out with the "stick" '?

Managed to get a workout in today - first day of training since resting all week

 

Strength was down but still managed a mms ghp 7 and did a little work with my homemade inch trainer

 

 

 

Chris: thanks for the advice about trigger point - seems to have helped, i didn't have any acute pain - just a little achy

Is it on the bottom of the forearm.  Probably could be stress you get from the hypothenar eminence.  I would sometimes feel discomfort in my inner elbow from doing Rolling Thunder.

thanks everyone... the tendinitis is starting to calm down - even after a tough workout at kody burns' place

 

did a lot of active rest today and a few light ccs's with my 2..

 

i just got to learn to recover better and maybe i can get back after the MM1 and qual for nat'ls

 

 

getting a lot of good help and encouragement which is making me better all-around  :)

I get the same thing, it's really annoying. This may or may not be useful for you - but ever since I cut out the main sources of omega 6, the inflammation went right down, especially any heated plant/seed oils. Along with the advice above - I especially find working the extensors helps.

Mr. Vance,

 

Rick Kaselj and I have a program out that addresses this:  Fix My Elbow Pain

 

In a Nut Shell:  Rick covers the rehab side of tennis elbow and golfer's elbow and I show the preventive side.  It's only $27.

 

My preventive stuff has helped me keep it away for over two years now and I've shown it to a lot of my guys at The Grip Authority and it has helped them as well.

 

Good luck.  I know it sucks. I have had it multiple times in each elbow, mainly due to not being proactive enough.

 

Jedd

just an update on the ongoing battle with mild tendinitus...

 

i've found that doing light stretches and light wrist curls with ten pounder has been starting to make a difference

 

i had been neglecting wrist strength the last 6 or so months and it has finally caught up

 

 

moral of the story: do your wrist curls... either with plates or barbell - but do not neglect the wrists
