Medial epicondylitis or Golfers ElbowViews: 796

Bill Vick
When I was younger (so, so, so long ago) :) I was really into Martial arts, particularly Karate. All of the punching and then boxing tore the tendon on the inside of my elbow and over the years I have been diagnosed with Medial epicondylitis. It strikes about every year, particularly when I lift weights and do curls or chin ups.

I no longer do Karate but I do lift and am very active. The pain is intense and I've been told by three different doctors that I only have two recourses.

First rest (no exercise) and an anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen for a month or so and using a support for a couple of months as well. I tried that and it took 6 months before I could be active again.

Second Surgery - which has no guarantee and a 6 month recuperation.

If anybody has any words of wisdom or how to deal with this I'd love to hear about it.
