I'm a physiotherapist. I'm actually about to head in to work now so I don't have time for a full run-down. There is a way out but if it is well established, lateral epicondylitis - yes, it is commonly termed tennis elbow but you can get it from any form of overuse of the extensor tendon - will take a little time to resolve. This is assuming the diagnosis is accurate of course. I'll be back later but for now I'll have to keep you in suspense...Never had a problem with pain in my forearms or elbows until I started cutting, splitting, stacking firewood two years ago. Doctors call it tennis elbow but I have never played tennis in my life. Already had two shots in each elbow within the last year because of the pain and I'm due another because the pain is creeping back.
I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Will it get any better or any tips to make it better. I wear braces on my elbows now when I cut, split, stack and they help some. I'm really hoping it's just a little soreness and I'm getting stronger lol. I'm 35 yr old by the way. Thanks.
