Re: Tennis Elbow

I had this years ago when I started doing chin-ups for the first time.

The physical therapist I saw was pretty useless, just gave me some stretching and strengthening exercises which did nothing except irritate my wrists.


What worked for me: Trigger point massage

Massage the trigger points with a tennis ball against a wall:

It's basically just finding the painful points and applying pressure, several times a day. It may get worse before it gets better. Just stick with it. Really helped me.
