    Try Active Rlease Therapy, it worked extremely well for me and my golfers elbow (yes scar tissue deposits in tendon).

    Eh, unfortunately all these months of being out of the gym have helped little. I still have a very sharp dull pain when tapping around my elbow joint with my other hand. Specifically tapping the bone. Nothing else hurts around the elbow except that small spot. It takes a few moments to dig for it with my thumb, but when I find it the pain is identical to what it has always been.

    I'm beginning to think this has nothing to do with Tendonitis. It's sounds more like a RTS - radial tunnel syndrome aka a pinched nerve in the elbow joint that causes similar pain to Tendonitis.

    I have lost all hope now and want to see a doctor.

    That was my advice back in Jan... I understand trying to exhaust ALL other options before getting cut on; however, this was a very easy and painless recovery. After MONTHS and MONTHS of nagging pain, 12 weeks of recovery seems like a simple solution. (Just my opinion/advice) Good Luck!

    From experience, 95% of tendonitis-type problems have a nerve component as the root cause!

    instead of doing benchpress with barbbell...try using dumbbells instead.

    What is the usual way to get rid of it? Outside of normal remedies, what is the medical way to get rid of it?

    There are methods to mobilise nerves that are stuck - don't know how much of it has filtered over there, but the Neuro-orthopaedic techniques and work on the spine and soft tissue form the spine to the point of the problem can help.

    Hopefully, I'm going to try to see a sports-medicine doc this week, or next for this issue. It's driving me nuts!

    hey brett..
    about 1 1/2 years ago i ended up getting tennis elbow on both arms. the pain started after doing dumbell side lateralls for the shoulders(slacked off on the form on one set just to get a few more reps)..anyhow it was so painfull that i couldnt even rech out and pick up a coffee mug..i woud just get a sharp pain in my outer elbows. being the smart ass i was i cotinued to train for a week or two with the condition before actually going to see a doctor about it. he asked me to take 4 weeks off from training and with the biggest fuss i decided to and once i got back into the gym the pain had dramatically reduced. i do still get slight discomfort in my right elbow...however what i did was to eliminate movements that aggravated the condition..

    for example..to this day i cannot do barbell reverse curls..so i just substituted hammer curls and concentrated on very good form. i cannot do heavy skull crushers..so i either add it to the latter part of my tricep workout when my tricep is already spent and i dont need a lot of weight to work it out..or i sub in another excercise etc..

    i was also advised to warm up(i use a rowing machine) and stretch the elbow/forearm well before working out which also have seemed to help. i've added fish oil and glaucosomine into my diet which also seemed to have helped. i dont know if the condition will ever go away...but there are little things you can do to make it more manageable i suppose..

    dont give up working out dude..just try your best to work around it!!!

This guy really knew his stuff, and pain coping is an area of specialty for them. They know all kinds of unorthodox ways to heal you and relieve pain (manipulative massage, acupuncture, natural substances). Since traditional MD's don't usually fully solve tennis elbow for athletes and it's often a life long thing for many, I'd suggest seeing a DO or Holistic Specialist. You can find all sorts of material on these guys on the web and in books stores. More and more people are turning to alternative medicine, and its something you should at least look in to if you have a chronic problem like Tennis Elbow. You cannot lose anything, and you have the world to gain. You won't regret it. You can find a DO in your area by going to http://www.osteopathic.org/index.cfm...D=findado_main . You might be able to find holistic specialists in your area that aren't full-fledged physicians as well.

    You may know a lot of this stuff already as you've had the problem a long time, but hope this helps somehow.
    That is an option i recommend. I think a chiropractor could do alot too. they dont just work on backs. i've had my hand, elbows, shoulder, and feet adjusted. if your elbow is misaligned, it could cause your problem.

    I have the same problem

    So, was there ever a resolution to this? I have had tennis elbow for two years. I do not know what caused it. I do not lift weights. I have been to three orthopedic surgeons, wore arm braces, switched temporarily to part-time work, switched to remote work so I can use voice controls to do my job, had two EMGs, went through 12 weeks of physical therapy, and even followed my last doctor's advice to "wait for a year" to see if it heals on its own. Well it hasn't, and now my insurance company denied my doctor's request for an MRI because they say it is "not medically necessary". It has progressed to the point where I sometimes get such painful cramps (in my hands) that I double over in pain and cannot even talk. I am getting to the point where I sometimes wish they would just remove my arms and replace them with fake ones. If anyone has any help, then I would appreciate it!
