    the first link is a little surgery happy regarding treatment, the second at a high level gives suggestions for other options but not really exercise choices.

    I found hammer curls and overhand grip bicep curls to be good exercises. Initially some R&R was needed but as long as you don't overload weightwise the curls shouldn't be too demanding.

    Chances of re-occurrence can be variable - genetics plays a role and prevention exercises will help reduce the chance or impact


    or quit tennis.:adios:

    After trying physical rehab and stretching for months, I gave in and went to the doc. Steroid injections x2 sorted it out.

    I got it bad when I first started doing sword work. I got one of these and took it easy for a couple weeks.

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm having some elbow tendon issues that I'm worried might keep me from getting back into bjj. So, what is that elbow brace thing you have pictured there?

    Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) in the majority of cases are overuse injuries, too much work, not enough rest. Ice, splints etc can help with the inflammation but the only way to get rid of it is rest until it is gone, not to just where you can bear it.
    Steroid injections mask the pain by interfering with the inflammatory response, you are still doing damage and will have to pay for it eventually

    Thanks Dock. I'm just going to stick to lower body and cardio until it's better

    Had bad elbow tendinitis for almost six months. Couldn't do a single pull-up, or any weights that used bicep. Every rolling session meant heavy anti-inflammatories after. Finally got the doc to stick me with cortisone.

    Cortisone is the magic medicine. Been 3 weeks now and I'm back to doing curls, getting arm-barred, no problem. It's like it never happened.

    That thing looks interesting, how does the band work?
