Tennis Elbow Treatment What's the Best Treatment, Remedy or Cure for Tennis Elbow Relief? [Video]
What's the best treatment, remedy or cure for Tennis Elbow? Is it the inflammation pills? What about icing? How about all those braces, bands, and supports? Then there are the lotions, potions, and gimmick devices And, finally, what about the dreaded... Painful cortisone shot Well as I'm sure you're starting to realize. If you've had Tennis Elbow longer than a few weeks the answer is none of the above these so-called remedies are nothing but quick fixes that cover up your pain other symptoms Worst of all, if you rely on them heavily they may slow down your recovery or even harm you! Of course I understand you may not know what else to do. It's not your fault if you've been given a lot of bad advice naturally the easiest thing to do in the beginning anyway is just go along with the crowd follow the common wisdom take the conventional medical approach except that Tennis Elbow can be extremely stubbornly resistant to most conventional treatments, exercises, remedies and so-called "curees" So, what do you do when they all let you down? Hi, this is Allen Willette. I treat Tennis Elbow everyday very successfully even if you're nowhere near my practice I'd really like to try and give you some solid info you can count on for a change especially if you're getting really frustrated with your tennis elbow and even a little desperate and find yourself basically throwing stuff against the wall hoping something sticks Hey, if that's the case maybe it's time to take a time out to reconsider what your goal is I'm confident when you stop to think about it what you really want is to help your injury heal to get strong again - not just short-term pain relief So, let's forget about symptoms, quick fixes and all that tips and tricks at least for a minute and ask ourselves the real question... What are the best treatments for healing Tennis Elbow - one hundred percent? I think the answer to that has to start with knowing how the healing process of muscles and tendons works.
Because if we don't understand it how can we choose the best ways to help it so very briefly there are three stages or steps your body takes in its healing process after you're injured The first step... Get ready for it... Is inflammation. Yeah, that's right, inflammation! Believe it or not, it's a natural part of healing whether you scrape your knee, tear a muscle or injure a tendon. If they're still telling you that chasing and suppressing your inflammation with drugs, ice, creams, and shots will somehow help your Tennis Elbow heal - I have news for you As crazy is it sounds they're basically telling you to do the opposite of what will help your healing process Be sure to watch my video: "InfammaSCAM Exposed" that debunks this perpetual inflammation myth if you're confused about that The next stage of healing, called the repair stage, involves scar tissue which you can't really avoid if you have any damage that involves tearing but there's a lot you need to know about how to deal with it in the best possible way to release, minimize and strengthen it This is such a key area I can't really do a proper job of explaining everything about it here especially when it comes to the third stage of healing The 'Remodeling Stage' But I think I'm gonna hold off on that for now just cut to the chase and tell you what I believe the most important treatment to help Tennis Elbow sufferers heal one hundred percent is for the fastest, fullest possible recovery I think you need three things: The first and by far the most important is hands on muscle and tendon therapy and I don't mean just massage though that's a start I'm really talking about more specific focused therapies Here's a key point: Muscles and tendons heal somewhat differently and if you really want to get the maximum treatment benefit you need different therapy techniques some to release sticky scar tissue and persistent muscle tension and some to stimulate tendon healing What the heck do I mean by "stimulate tendon healing?" Well, to answer that properly, I really have to recommend another one of my videos It's about this tricky scar tissue issue and how muscles and tendons have different healing challenges and benefit from different therapy techniques to help them.
I draw it all out on a whiteboard for you and it really helps to visualize it. The video is called "How Muscles And Tendons Heal" and you can watch it at TennisElbowClassroom.com The second most important treatment is a specific kind of stretch that stretches your muscles very briefly without putting too much strain on your tendons Sounds pretty simple, but almost everyone is teaching you how to stretch in a risky, dangerous way that could make your injury worse DON'T hold that stretch is what i'm saying! (if you can believe me) And third, and lastly, a few basic forearm muscle exercises you've probably already learned however, in my opinion, most Tennis Elbow sufferers really shouldn't be doing any of them until they've started getting muscle and tendon therapy or learning how to do it themselves because so many aggravate their injuries trying to do exercises too soon And here's something really key you might never hear anywhere else... The healing and repair process can stall at any point and can remain stalled, incomplete, and, shall we say, "dormant" for months - or even years! And it very often does that with tendon injuries - That's the real problem and challenge so many Tennis Elbow sufferers have to overcome And the best way to deal with it is "hands-on therapy" Direct, skilled, physical manipulation of your muscles and tendons to release the scar tissue and "jump-start" the stalled healing process There's no substitute for it, but the good news is you can easily learn to do it for yourself and I have just the program to teach you especially if you can't afford to see a Therapist like me, or don't know where to find one that's this specialized... And in that spirit, I invite you to come over to my Tennis Elbow Classroom where I have more free articles and videos for you Be sure to watch that one called "How Muscles And Tendons Heal" for detailed, visual illustration of that healing process I was talking about You can also still get a free copy of my Ebook "Escaping The Tennis Elbow Triple Trap" Best of all, for a small fee, you can get instant access to the full self-help video program I developed for my Tennis Elbow clients where I'll guide you through a simple, easy-to-follow, yet comprehensive strategy to help you break your vicious Tennis Elbow cycle once and for all!
