Medial epicondylitis or Golfers ElbowViews: 1083
Sep 29, 2004 8:51 pmMedial epicondylitis or Golfers Elbow#

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.

Thanks,

Bill

check out the home page of this network for a couple of book refs. 'it's not carpal tunnel syndrome' is a must-read and best thing i came across in my research.

physicians default suggestions are typically ibuprofen and maybe surgery later on but these typically do not address the root causes.

it's a bit of a journey to get into researching this and there is often no 'quick fix' but the above book is an excellent starting point.

hope this helps,
