    Default Tendonitis of Brachioradialis (Elbow)

    Hi all,

    Wanting your take and advice regarding this kind of injury.
    I've been doing a bit of research but wanted your input.

    Around 6 months ago, I encountered tendonitis in my left arm, I left it untreated for 6 weeks and as a result now have long term damage that has to be corrected.
    1 week ago, my right arm began to show symptoms. I quickly began icing and massaging as quick as possible, which has subsided pain.

    I believe this problem is largely due to the overuse from a job that requires manual labour, lifting, loading, working with timber, etc as well as my gym work.
    Learning from my mistakes, a quick response on my right arm is now well into action. Fixing my left arm is also a priority.

    The advice I have gathered so far:
    Aggressive Ice Cup Massages
    Eccentic Training to help elongate muscle and strength

    Following this I am also tempted to buy the products demonstrated in this video and a long term solution.

    I get a bit of golfers elbow from time to time. Elbow sleeves have been a godsend.

    Hi puggy I had a similar problem.
    I left it untreated for a while and it just couldn't seem to heel. It got to a point at one stage it hurt to shake some ones hand.

    I had seen countless physio's over a 6 month period but couldn't fully fix the problem.
    It was until I discovered my current physio that I finally was cured of that dreaded pain.
    I can't remember the name of the machine they used. (i will find out this week when I see him)

    But its like a round cylinder they hold in there hand and it has a has a round solid ball peen head that hits your effected area about 3000 times in a 4 minute period. Bit like a piston.....they press this and rub it around your effects area. I had 3 sessions of this over a 3 week peroid and I was fixed.

    He did explain why this can be hard to fix if left so long....something along the lines from memory that the effected area becomes dormant and needs to be flared up again to reactivate the heeling process....but don't quote me on that
    Again I will find out this coming week what the treatment/session was called.
    Cheers

    I had golfers elbow, climbers arm, skiers armpits or whatever its called, in the brachialis of both arms which got progressively worse to the point where I had trouble holding a cup of OJ without suddenly dropping it from sudden loss of strength and feelings of overwhelming tenderness.

    When I stopped practising olympic lifts and scaled back the pullups they gradually subsided. Recognise the damage that high impact movements can have on the limbs tendons!

    Ice it til its numb, firm purposeful lacross ball massages until you sweat bullets, rest for a fortnight (avoided any exercises that aggravated it which happaned to be overhead pressing and hammer curls).

    Thanks for your reply. You have obviously dealt with this problem for a while. It is good to hear there may be a solution.
    I eagerly await the name of this therapy, I'm sure it could be perfect for what I need.
    Our physio's down here can be pretty hopeless. Most of the time they don't do jak.

    Wow, sounds like it got bad. I'm hopeful now mine won't get there.
    I've stopped most pressing movements, and am basically avoiding all bicep movements.
    Using wraps on as many gripping movements as possible.
    Having a good rest before beginning any of this.

    I'll be investing in two of these for work, that's for sure.

    I know what you mean about crap phsio's . I had this problem with my elbow seeing phsio after physio with no results. I was working in small country towns at the time so my options where limited. Until I finally found a physiotherapist back in Brisbane that did finally heal me.

    Anyhow I gave them a call and the treatment was called Dolarclast also know as shockwave therapy. I had 3 sessions which fixed me up. I had a cortisone injection as well as part of the process.
    This was about 7 years ago.
    It has flared up once since then but no where near as bad. I had the treatment again without injection and it's been fine since..
    Hope this helps as I know how annoyingly painful it is.
    This was the machine they use: http://www.ems-company.com/en/medica...orclast-master

    Think it's about 70 bucks a session.
    The machine is about 60k ...probably why smaller practices don't have them!

    60k for one of those. Don't get much for your money. All it does it hammer away. Surely they could make something that does similar for under 1000 bucks. Modify a hammer drill lol.

    That's exactly what I thought....get the Makita out and weld a round ball on the drill tip. They hadn't had it long and there was only one person trained to use and they did tell me how expensive it was.
    Sitting in the waiting room you can hear this machine hammering away 20 meters away behind closed doors.

    They actually have a new machine which can specifically scan tendons for damage or to see how much damage has been done to your tendons.
