tennis elbow and bad rotator cuff

i think i got these injuries from work. I deal black jack, so i am moving my arm the same way fast, and for long periods. Any good ideas to help me heal faster. the pain comes and goes. Advil makes it go away. I do not feel it is that bad yet i just want it to get better so i can do WOD did not realize it was that addicting. What exercise help the rotator cuff. Thank you for you help.

Re: tennis elbow and bad rotator cuff

Kyle,

If you could give more information as to what is going on with your elbow and shoulder it would be helpful.

This may be helpful:http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=50804 (WFS)

Re: tennis elbow and bad rotator cuff

I have a sneaking thought you stand with your shoulder sloping forward and your head and neck are pulled forward?

if this is true, back muscles are weak and your pec muscles are now pulling your shoulder forward. Think of the movement your doing day in day out.
short working height, arm bent. short reach.


Let us know if this the case.. look in the mirror or better yet have someone take a side photo of you standing in a relax standing position and come back.

The understanding of bio mechanics has vastly improved since the early 90s when the book was first written and hasnt been updated since.

Granted it was The text in its day but Rotator cuff treatment has gotten whole lot better.

Case and point.. i am 60 hours post op and I am out of my sling. Some surgeons are requiring 2 weeks of sling time.

The original post is better served by encouraging PT assessment then advising out dated methods.

Of course rotator cuff treatents have changed.....But he's not a doctor, and my recommendation was based on the fact that it's a fairly simple book that will explain the basic biomechanical problems

Since he is not a doctor. Instead of advising dumping money on a book that is dated and follows the "advised treatment" and blows thru his supraspinatus cause he decides to follow the book with the incorrect regime. His money would have been better spent by being seen by a pt, who would have done an assessment and taught the exercises correctly with proper explanation.
