How long does it take to fully recover from a Tennis Elbow injury? Some injuries seem to only take weeks to heal, while others take months or even years – Why is that?... And is there a way to speed up your healing process?
When it comes to treating an injury like Golfer’s Elbow, (or Tennis Elbow, for that matter) one of the first things we usually hear is: “Better do some exercises for it!” – But, are rehab exercises really a top priority when it comes to the tendon healing process? (And should you actually start doing them right away?)
Should you wear a brace as part of your Tennis Elbow treatment? Although they're recommended and sold everywhere you look, there are several reasons why supports like braces and splints may NOT be such a good idea for treating Tennis Elbow after all! (Unless "relief" in the short term is a higher priority than healing in the long term.)
Why do muscles – and especially tendons – often take so long to heal?… WHY don’t they fully recover from injury – even when you follow the “official” Tennis Elbow treatment advice to the letter?... And why do those tendons so often get re-injured in spite of your best efforts?
