    My friends and I have tried a few physicians mentioned in the thread. Some went for injections but the pain came back. imho it would take a while to recover from tennis elbow and plenty of rest. Personally I re-learned whatever badminton techniques I had and tried to get rid of my 'tennis strokes'.

    http://www.orthopaedics.com.sg/tennis-elbow-exercise Read this Mine was bad, could not even lift 2kg weight. I too take 3 mths off. Then went to the gym to strengthen my arms. Then get a sports tape (I used rock tape) and tape ur elbow, do this only once u recover Play slow and get a feel of it. If you feel pain, stop and go strengthen ur arms. To further support ur elbow, get a arm sleeve (I used Phiten) to cover over the sports tape. Its like double protection All in all you will take about 6mths to acutely recover back to ur original form.

    On the hair thingy, well best is you shave. If you do not want to shave then make sure you tape it firmly onto your elbow

    I also think in addition to the solutions mentioned in above posts try following

    1) racquet
    2) grip size
    3) string tension
    4) shuttlecock

    Either one or the combination of the above could be the causative factor. Alter them one by one and see what works for you.

    What are the racquet and shuttle details you are using currently?

    i had tennis elbow once. i tried slightly bending the elbow when lifting and smashing. it worked. the elbow should never be 100% straight.

    You need to see doctor. Medically your muscles or tendon has slight tear. You have to rest arm for at least 6 months to 1 year depend on the severity of damage, even to surgery. Hope that the info is useful.
