Got Elbow Tendinitis? Do this....

I have been struggling with a bad case of elbow tendinitis from overuse for around 8 months or so and I finally found a way to basically cure it. I had been staying away from any movement that involved my grip, iced my forearm, stretched, etc and while it helped it feel better, as soon as I started using it again the pain would flare up.

I had heard that eccentrics can be valuable for tendinitis so I started doing those days I went into the gym and that helped as well but it was still giving me issues (I assume because I wasn't doing them often enough). Then I ran across the videos below and I got the Flexbar that he mentions (didn't bother with the massage stick), did the exercises daily and in two weeks the pain is completely gone and hasn't even been noticeable during training that would otherwise cause issues. I am still going to use it daily to prevent it from coming back but it is a small price to pay to not deal with constant elbow pain.

If you have access to dumbbells or something at home you can do the same thing with that, no need to buy the Flexbar but I don't, it is pretty cheap ($15), and easy to travel with since I have to travel for work some.

Hope this helps
