Quench. Posted December 19, 2016 Share Posted December 19, 2016 I know there are a lot of threads on this: how to prevent, mainly body / hammer techniques. Some treatments. I'm only doing this as a once-in-a-while hobby, so developing proper hammer technique doesn't come quickly, and I can't justify buying nice hammers / equipment. I already had some elbow issues from "computer/mouse work" and from some weight lifting lots of pushups. Hammering a few weekends in a row -really- made the problem worse. So...I'm no doc, and I've not seen a doc about this problem. I've been taking a lot of Advil, and icing, and doing a wrist-down-stretch which sort of helps a little. And I have an arm band thing I found on Amazon (just so-so). But there is one technique it tried last night and I got a TON of relief, right away. Well, after 10-minutes-right-away. No, it didn't solve the problem itself, or give me an excuse to develop better hammer technique, and the pain isn't -gone-, but it was so helpful in reducing my level of pain, that I want to share it with you folks. I'm not sure about posting links to YouTube. But if you Google this, and find a video from Dr. Calvin Ross, you should have the right one: "tennis elbow trigger point massage" I found Ross' video while searching for ways to deal with this issue, and found a video from someone else, demoing the technique, and pointing to Ross' video where he learned it. Good luck! - Q Mod note: While youtube can have good information, it is NOT the same as going to a doctor that can diagnose the problem and recommend a course of treatment.
