Default Tennis elbow?

I think Iím getting tennis elbow from shooting my bow. Never had an issue last year and I shot a lot. Itís been bugging me for about 3 weeks. Not overly painful but sore. Soreness is worse when I extend my arm all the way out.


Anyone have an idea of a remedy?

Get you an elbow strap and put it on the meaty part of your forearm. Wear it religiously and no "shower activities".

Does your tendon pop out of place?

Go to your orthopedic guy and get a shot. Just got my 2nd one 3 weeks ago and still feel good. Now, if the tendon's are in really bad shape, the shots will only delay the surgery. How do I know, because I had a 3 shot series on the other elbow several years ago, then had to have it fixed.

Iím going through the same thing now. Go see your doctor.

Iíve been going to a physical therapist for a few weeks and itís starting to get better.

She has been doing massages, ultrasound and something similar to acupuncture. She also has me doing some exercises and stretches.

I get it a lot. I usually have to take anti inflammatory meds and STOP using it for a couple of days. Usually if I put it in a sling for a day, it'll make a huge difference. Also, try and sleep with your arm straight.

Best advice I have .....take a lacrosse ball and roll that tendon long ways (Fingers to elbow) two times a day. Been there have the tee shirt to where I couldn't even pick up a can. I self rehabilitated myself from that alone.

I had it from shooting rivets for years. Changed jobs and no problem for a very long time until about 4 years ago. I was using a t-post driver to drive an 8' copper rod into the ground to ground my electrical box at the house. Aggravated it bad. Wore the strap but got so bad that didn't work. Got the shot but didn't do much. Got to where I couldn't pull my bow back at lowest poundage. Everytime I would try it felt like I was ripping something. Ended up resting it and using crossbow to get through season. That season ended up being three seasons. Finally right after third season was over I could pull it back wirhout any pain. So I went hog hunting and shot 3 pigs in one night with my bow. I still try to take it easy and my bow is still set at 54#. Just shot a doe Monday night with it. But still worried ill do something to set me back again. Think ill just be happy I can still shoot it.

But like everyone else said... Rest it and don't over do it. Trust me. It was bad.

I got mine at CVS. I've had the shot and it really helps, but won't last longer than a month or two. Ice, band and ibuprofen.

Stretch, exercise, ice! I would shoot minimum! I got it 2 years ago, and it still hasn't healed completely. Dr said ibuprofen and rest, but I can't just rest as long as they want me to. My animals would be mad if I didn't unload 50# bags of feed and square bales of hay.

There you go.

You might also get one the put in the freezer type cold bags and ice each night. If that seems to work shoot a little more and work back to your normal routine.

I had in my right arm last year and left this year. Takes about 6-8 months to get right again. I have severely limited my shooting this year just trying to heal.

Hey man. I've gone through tennis elbow that was so bad I couldn't pick up a jar of peanut butter palm down without feeling like there was an ice pick being driven through that part of my arm. My primary recommended an Airrosti doctor. They do soft tissue work (imagine a highly targetes deep tissue massage being done on you by the hulk). It hurts real good. Two visits and I was good to go. Messed up and impinged my shoulder a year later. Fixed in 3 visits. Look into it.
I am in no way affiliated with the Airrosti brand or doctors. I am just a very satisfied patient. Good luck.
Btw, when I say fixed the elbow and shoulder I mean fixed. No wraps, ice, heat, etc.

Just healed up from it. Took me 8 months. The only thing I did was rest with little use and a lot of aleve. It's hard to rest the elbow but good luck.

If it doesn't heal soon and you have the coin, look into PRP (Platlet Rich Plasma) treatment. It is awesome and works on tennis elbow.

I did the same thing shooting my bow. One day at the chiropractor I told him about it.

He adjusted my elbow/forearm.

Not going to lie... it HURT.

Cleared up next day.

X2 on the lacrosse ball. The tendon/muscles are bunched up and need to be worked out. Gotta put weight on it and really push the ball into the bunched up area and roll around on it. It hurts like a son of a &$@". If it doemst hurt than you are not hitting the spot. A foam roller works well too.

X2. This is who got me on the lacrosse ball and foam rollers. I lock up a lot and when you have to swing a golf club for a living you learn to do lots of preventative.

Airrosti is the most amazing treatment I've ever done. It blows everything else out of the water. Fixed my back and shoulder in incredibly short order, 2 visits for both to be completely pain free.

I've had to lay off my bow for several weeks now, to rest the elbow. Been icing it and doing stretches with it, very sparingly but its helping. Got out the bow the other day, after trying different positions of my arm in the draw motion (without bow!), and found that by turning my hand DOWNWARD on the pull will greatly reduce the stress on it, no pain. If you turn your hand UPWARD and in the pulling motion, again try without the bow, you will tell the difference immediately. Shot mine a few times the other day like this and it hasn't been any worse, as it did before. I'm also doing very light curls with the arm, 5 lbs., just trying to get my strength back into it. Seems to be helping anyway. Still hurts when I keep it bent for awhile then try straightening it, not understanding why that is.
I don't see the point in shots if its not going to heal anything. You do that then you risk tearing it more by over doing it because it feels better. IMO
Good luck!

Yeah. I think I started drawing and rotating my palm outward at the same time and caused the strain. Itís weird that it is sore on the bone as well as just below the bone.... sucks.

google or youtube voodoo floss. You can do the same thing with a bicycle inner tube or any kind of heavy elastic band. I used to have bad tennis elbow from arm wrestling. It works miracles. I no longer have any issues.

This. I'm currently going through it and between the lacrosse ball and rolling the muscles on a hard small cardboard tube it does wonders to loosen up the tendons and my elbow is nearly better. Mine has taken about 5 months to heal but that's because I wont lay off an keep re-injuring it.

I did it myself. I used a heavy elastic knee wrap because it is what I had on hand. I wrapped the joint as tightly as possible and then torqued on the joint in all directions as much as I could tolerate. Had the wife twist on it some too. Relief was instantaneous for me.

The guys who developed this technique called it voodoo because they do not know why it works. They just know it works.
