Elbow Tendinitis?

Mine used to flare up when I started playing 2-3 times per week. I wore a compression brace and that would help on the course. Over time the muscles got stronger and it doesn’t flare up as often anymore. 

I suspect I no longer need my elbow compression band either... but I've kind of grown use to having it on now 😆.

Cortisone shots are helpful to eliminate pain. Whatever dysfunction that caused the tendinitis in the first place needs to be addressed. If you continue down the same road without changing anything you are likely back to the same place you are now within a short period of time. Keep stretching, strengthening and modifying your activities. Look for a local therapist who is certified in dry needling to get the best of both worlds with massage and dry needling. Plus it can be on your insurances tab!

As someone who works in manufacturing, doing heavy manual labor every day and who used to be pretty big into weight training; I can tell you that braces help but really all that is going to heal and prevent tendonitis is ice, heat, stretching and rest.

There may be drugs or natural remedies out there that will reduce or mask the pain but all its doing is numbing the pain and pain is a sign that you are doing damage to your body.

For many years, when I still lifted pretty hard, I would suffer from tendonitis and I kind of just dealt with it and ignored the pain.  When I stopped lifting, wouldnt you know it, the pain gradually went away.

I also have tendonitis in my knees from working in a factory and walking on concrete all day long.  I know that when my knees start to hurt and they get stiff and achy, its time for a new pair of shoes.  Also, Ive noticed that magically, when I take some time off of work, my knees suddenly dont hurt so much anymore and when Im off for a week or more, they dont hurt at all.  Weird, huh?

So I bought CBD cream yesterday (reminded me of a 70’s head shop) and a FlexBar to do the exercises in the earlier posts. Hope it works!

Any feedback on this?

I've come down with some golfer's elbow and am icing, stretching, using a massage gun, etc.  Ordered a couple different compression braces to try out tonight as well.

I'm also seriously considering the CBD cream.  STUPID question here but I have to ask:  that wouldn't trigger a urinalysis problem would it?  I'm Active Duty...still get hit with the random whiz quiz every once in a while...

EDIT:  Googled this and some THC can be present in some products and could possibly show up in a test, the difference being full-spectrum CBD (which has everything from the plant including THC), and broad-spectrum CBD in which the THC has been removed.

It’s slowly getting better for me, but I still have a little tinge pain and wear a brace when I play golf (afraid not to now?). The brace definitely reduced the damage from playing at first. I tried topical CBD (Myaderm Double Strength Advanced Sport Cream 2400) it didn’t help me at all. I did a bunch of different exercises and stretches from this thread and elsewhere and it seemed to make my tennis elbow (mines lateral, not golfers elbow) worse - I may have overdone it, or done something with poor form? A neighbor PT told me it was wrist deflection on/off the course that was causing/prolonging my tennis elbow, told me to buy an ordinary wrist brace and wear it as much as possible (not while playing). I started that a little more than a week ago, and my elbow has improved! Crucial that I wear it sleeping, as my elbow hurt the most when I got up in the morning, I must’ve been doing something with my wrist and/or elbow (hyper extending) while asleep. So I guess it’s an individual journey as different things have helped different people. I may try dry needling if it doesn’t go away completely now, cortisone is my last resort.

Interesting that some report immediate relief from CBD while others report no help at all.

With all my weight training I've dealt with tendinitis plenty but never golfer's elbow like this.  Playing, lots of Orange Whip and SuperSpeed, and getting older, and here I am.  

Hope you're able to eliminate it completely, and soon.

You too. I am unable to play consecutive days now, Mon-Wed-Fri is my limit. Sucks…

THAT's exactly what I'm afraid of.  Playing 18 tomorrow, then 18 Saturday.  And I have plans to play 36 on my birthday in a few weeks at my favorite area course.  Wincing at every shot makes it kind of hard to commit and I know you know what I mean.

So I’m sad to report, I’m shutting it down for 2-3 weeks.  Nothing but short game practice for me for a while.

Last night I went to the range to try out a compression sleeve, and find my go-to tee shot that has alluded me for a bit. Hit a lot of mid-range wedges, and a lot of drivers, and felt a twinge in my elbow/forearm but nothing severe.  Found I had the ball a little too far forward in my stance, and that I could play with the sleeve on, and packed it in looking forward to this morning’s round.  

This morning was typical Nebraska...Memorial Day Weekend and low 40s with 20mph gusts, and I swear I felt every shot like a bolt of lightning run right up my arm.  We play a team stableford among the STRATCOM guys so I didn’t want to quit, but it hurt and it’s still throbbing.  I actually hit it great off the tee, 70% FIR, but any turf interaction was truly painful and I eventually started thinning everything.

So, rest until I’m pain free seems to be the only responsible thing to do.  Lord, grant me patience...

Here too. I’m playing twice a week now, used to play more. Elbow seems to be getting better, but VERY slowly because I never stopped altogether. I’m convinced mine was brought on largely from playing VERY “tight lies” all winter with stiff steel iron shafts, and chunking the ball way more often than when there’s some grass.

s*** a 49/49:80 yesterday. Brace still works. Had to return one to Walgreens as the compression pillow was slipping out of the brace. I have another that has a ratchet to tighten the brace and works very well.
