      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Elbow tendonitis

Recommended Posts

Any good recommendations on treatment/recovery?

 

I'm talking about chronic inside (lateral?) tendonitis. I've been resting, done physical therapy, wrist brace, etc. I'm trying acupuncture now.

 

Anything else that has worked for people?

bromelain as a supplement

regular icing

arnica gel

hydro-contrast therapy (2 min hot, 30 sec cold, 3-5 rounds, end on cold)

most importantly is to balance the muscles: push-ups, dips, reverse wrist curls, etc...

I've been cursed with Elbow pain for a few years now. I had to lay off any sort of climbing for a while it got so bad. I read the dodgy elbows article the other day and it seemed to describe and identify the specific pain better than anything I'd come across before. I'm going to start the exercise plan he recommends as well and hope for the best.

Ski Mountaineering and slogging Volcanoes is your best cure. Wrap the rock shoes up in ziploc bags and put away the fruit boots and ice tools.

I played golf once a week or more for 20+years and climbed, when i stopped climbing a couple years ago and bought a computer, I now have the worst tendinitis, which I never had before? hopefully this works, must be my loss of muscle
