I've had severe pain just above the back of my elbow for four weeks now. Thought initially that this could be due to a pinched nerve, but an MRI was clean. I received a steroid injection in the elbow a week ago and have received some relief. Yesterday, I decided to get some deep tissue work done and my therapist basically told me the lower part of my tricep where it inserts into the elbow is insanely inflamed.
Now that I poke at the tender area it's pretty clear to me that I have a strained tricep or possibly tricep tendonitis since it's been going on for a month now and despite rest and anti-inflamatories, no improvement. I literally can't bend my arm fully without feeling sharp pain in back of the elbow, jsut above the bone.
Anyone go through this and recover?
What was your exercise routine?
I've heard that eccentric exercises are the way to go here to stretch the tendon.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
