Tennis elbow (and shoulder).
« on: July 03, 2017, 05:03:03 PM »
Hello everyone, it's been a bit since I posted and this somewhat resembles The "Where do you draw the line post", but I've been having pain in my left shoulder and right forearm.  Dr. Thinks it's tennis elbow (and shoulder).  Said "you may have to lighten up your lifts".  Ironically, the pain started when I began playing hockey again.   What I'm wondering is if anyone has trained through a similar injury, did
You modify things?  Anyone have to stop training?  I have a forearm strap the dr gave me and I started using wrist straps (no idea if this really helps, but it feels better). 

Thanks,

Mike

Don't take my advice because I always lift through the pain.  That's bad.

Try to get a prescription for Voltaren emulgel and start taking some anti-inflammatories like Aleve or Advil.

I've had elbow issues on and off for 10 years or so.

Things that have helped me are wrist curls that stretch the affected tendon, tight elbow sleeves for heavy bench, limiting preacher curls and Bando's tendonitis curls:

Flex:  I'll ask my Dr about those and see if I can get some.  I hate taking breaks.

I will try those Bando-  with the stretches after.  Essentially an assisted concentration curl and reverse right?
