Bro you need pt. I went to a pro but you can give it a try yourself. Drop som motrin ed, ice directly to the area for 10 min or till it turns a nice pink, 5- 8 time a day. At the pt office they had me do a contrast bath. I stuck my elbow in a hottub for say 4 min then directly went to the ice for 2min. Do this 3 time in a row, 2-3 time per week. Oh ya I wore a brace all the time. I would try to stay away from pulling movements much as you can. It took me 6 months so good luck.

I got it too. I was on HGH for 4 months, I didn't see much in the area of gains, but it helped with my tendons for sure.

Bro, I went to PT for about a month and I wore braces and wraps and it still did not get any better. Finally I had cortizone injections and they have never felt better. My tendonitis was called "Golfer's Elbow". Hope this helps.

cortizone actually makes you connective tussue weaker. It releaves pain but it fks you up.
Take some time off, take some advil and if you can, find some adequan. Adequan is very hard to come buy though. But it does work like magic.
Also one possible cause from tendonitis in the elbow is from (gona put this in non scientific terms so you can understand)
the top of the humerous ..bone that bi's and tri's are bound to has been causing a lot of impact and pressure on the point where it is connected to your torso. Mainly hitting in a direction pointed toward your shoulderblade.
You see there are a lot of important things that run through that tiny connection.
Major vessels, nerves and connective tissue.
So when you put a lot of impact on that area it can eventually effect it.
So if you are benching heavy and doing it wrong, or playing football where you are pushing alot, or punching, that could be the source of the problem.
Do you understand so far?
So in order for your tendonitis to go away you have to stop that stuff for a while and let the inflamation go down.
If you dont then you will eventually develope scar tissue and that may require surgery to fix.
The tendon is inflamed from the inside out so you got to take it easy. Rest it, ice it, take anti inflamitories, and if you can some adequan.
When you go back start light.
Most of the time the average person gets tendonitis because ther are using improper technique and that put an overload on the loints and connective tissue, the other times is when you are in a very rough sport, or both.
hope I helped out!

There is no such thing as a quick fix, even with adequan.
Let your body heal properly or you will regret it.
Dont be stubborn about it.
This is probably not what you want to hear but its what you need to hear.
and please do not strap on an elbo sleve and try to work through the pain!

Guys, I do not have pain anymore. I only feel a slight little tickle when I kind of twist my arm. But my arm isn't going to be twisted at any point during a training session. So do you bros think its ok to go back to training? I've been doing things around the house and I do not feel anything. BTW...what is adequan?
