Why Are Tennis Elbow And Golfer’s Elbow So Difficult To Recover From?
Tendon injuries like Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow are notorious for not healing easily or well – But why is that the case? Why are they often so stubborn and challenging to recover from?
(This is the big picture view, which we’ll build on in later videos – And not really an essential video if you’re pressed for time. Honestly, I think I’m a little long-winded in this one!)

In this episode, we’re going to take a look at what I’m sure you’ll agree is one of the most important and perplexing questions about Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow.
And I’m going to start to answer it in this video and build on it in the ones to follow.
The question is: Why is Tennis Elbow (Or Golfer’s Elbow) so often such a challenging, difficult condition to recover from?
There’s also the question of: “What’s the best strategy for treating it, reversing it and keeping it from ever coming back to haunt you?”
But we’ll get to that second question in a later video.
I hope you’ll agree with me that the first step to overcoming a challenge is to properly identify what it is – What’s the nature of this problem?
This may come as a surprise, but most Tennis Elbow sufferers seem to be failing to do that.
Now, I know you probably want to get right into talking about treatment, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
Let’s make sure we understand what we’re up against first.
This is an injury that so many people end up struggling with for months or even years!
So many sufferers rush in and just start throwing one thing after the other at it without bothering to make sure they know what it its that they are trying to treat and accomplish…
(Besides getting some relief, of course.)
And what ends up happening is countless mistakes are made in treating it, money is wasted, sleep is lost, jobs may be put on the line, and sometimes relationships are strained.
