Inner Elbow Pain, Doc says rest, 2 months not better.

I don't know how I hurt my right elbow but the pain set in late November when I was going pistol grip (hammer) pull ups. It wasnt a pop but a pain and I had to stop. I had started a pull-up routine at my gym which may have caused it.

Pain location: Inside right arm just above the elbow.

It only hurts during pulling exercises and it I really twist my arm counter clockwise. Also hurts when I clench the steering wheels, bar or a tennis ball. I can throw, do pushups, bench press, bar dips. Burpees hurt a little when I go to explode and push up quickly.

Doctor visit late December and was told I'm fine and to just rest. The Doc had me resist up and resist down with her pushing against my hands and I had no pain. No xray or mri, not sure if I nee one.

Any idea what it may be? Did some reading and sounds like an Ulnar issue.

I'd really like to figure out what this is and what I can do. Not being able to do ANY pulling really sucks No olympic lifts or pullsups since November.

I've been taking an anti-inflammatory for a while in addition to fishoil, glucossomine and chondrointin.

I don't think this is Golfers Elbow as it's pretty painful when I go to pull anything heavy. I can deadlift as long as I just let the bar hang but if I go to rack it and jerk slightly up.....major elbow pain. It also doesnt hurt bowl.

Re: Inner Elbow Pain, Doc says rest, 2 months not better.

Does sound like an ulnar nerve issue.... can likely help to free it up by:


1. Posterior capsule stretch, sleeper stretch, external rotation stretch

2. Lats stretch, pec stretch, pec minor massage. Can use basketball or other ball and lie on top of it for pec rolling.

For pec major you can use corner stretch -- arms abducted to 90, with hands pointing up. Face the concave corner of a wall, and let the elbows touch the side of the wall. Then lunge forward and let it stretch out the anterior muscles of the shoulder.

3. Deep tissue massage all around the scapula; anterior, lateral and posterior shoulder; coracobrachialis, biceps brachii, and brachialis.

4. Nerve glides, middle of the page: http://www.handhealthresources.com/S.../Exercises.htm

5. Band dislocates and wall slides

6. Foam roll thoracic spine (put 45 lbs plate on your chest for deeper stretch). Also, roll side to side as you are rolling and try to arch your back

in addition to the above, i'd make sure that your first rib is mobile in depression/inferior direction
