    I use this cream called "penetrex" Been bothered by tennis elbow n golfer's elbow from bowling after diagnosed by my specialist.After doing research online found this cream,works wonders for me,give it a try.Introed to a few friends n family,they tried and was surprised by the effect,initial thoughts by them were that it's a "numbing" cream but then it proved other wise.Do a search on the Internet for this cream.***disclaimer..I am in no way advertising or related to the manufacturer of the above mentioned cream,just that for me,it works much better than pain killers or icing or other forms of pain alleviating methods***

    I have tennis elbow from bowling and am looking for a good sinseh.

    My elbow isn't hurting and I'm not in pain but it feels funny. Like it's raw or exposed nerve. It goes away after a few days. Do I have Tennis Elbow or almost getting it?

    Do you have a pain in your elbow when you lift up your laptop out of the bag? Or rotating your wrist while holding a heavy book by the fingers? Or zipping up after visiting the loo...

    If yes, welcome to the club , else lucky you

    Nope. No pain at all. It just feels like I jabbed my funny bone and it's tender. So I was wondering if I might be developing Tennis Elbow.

    1st of all, I'm not in any medical line. I'm just a tennis elbow sufferer or ex-sufferer

    If you have some strange feelings on the elbow, I see it as a sign that it is coming.

    There are 2 things you should do:

    1. Strenghten your forearm muscles by doing curls for both upper and lower forearm. Do more for upper.

    2. You would preferably not want to hear this..... lower your tension

    Good luck for my 2 cts

    Thanks for the suggestion. Gonna do more curls. Might get the Flexbar. Foam thingy that you're supposed to twist. It's supposed to help with Tennis Elbow. Available locally at Shopper's Drug Mart.

    How disappointing to hear that...

    I am looking for that magic cure, even though I dun believe in sinseh. But I am desperate and ready to try anything... even if its gonna cost me.

    My shots can be terrible now. A simple high serve can even end up in the wrong side of the court. Its like the elbow is very unstable on impact and I cannot gauge the distance and direction of the shots.

    It has been at least 9 months since I first suffer from Tennis Elbow. Some nights while sleeping, you can even feel throbbing pain in the elbow and wakes you up! it sucks!

    If it's that bad, then you need to stop playing for a few weeks until it gets a bit better. There's no magic cure; it won't get better unless you rest. Read post number 8 above. And see a doctor if you can. Good luck.

    There is no magic cure to tennis elbow,I been seeing Tcm to specialists and it din work,until I stumbled upon the cream that I mentioned earlier on while searching for a cure for tennis elbow...even the cream takes some time to work,so what I did was after using the cream for about two weeks and in the meantime letting the pain go,I do exercises to strengthen the area.So far even if there is recurrence,I still have the cream to fall back on.

    I also have the same problem in my elbow.
    And I think technique is the problem.

    I wear a elbow brace which puts pressure on the muscles below the joint which helps restrict movement and stops aggravating the injury.

    Anyway, I believe it is a technique issue because my follow through on the smash relies on flicking my forearm quite a lot and it means putting pressure on the elbow joint all throughout the stroke. The harder I try to smash the more pressure I put on my elbow.

    A months ago, I saw a video of Cai Yun Fa on this site smashing with a follow through that goes across the body like a tennis player does. Whereas my follow through goes downwards and stays on my racquet arm side of the body (so my arm doesn't cross over to the other side of the body.)

    Anyway, I haven't tried to change my technique but am relying on the elbow brace which helps a lot.
    My tennis elbow been so bad in the past I could not lift a bag of groceries sometimes.. Now it's not too bad but I try not to smash too hard without the elbow brace.

    I'd like to try the penetrex though as it might help my elbow and my sore heel.

    I think tension has a small part to play but having a racquet with tooooo loose tension will also be a problem for your elbow. I find that using really head light racquets and swinging faster with these headlight racquets also causes issues. having a head heavy racquet may help with a slightly slower smash (it worked for me anyway).

    good luck people and hope you all get better with your injuries...

    Are referring to this guy?
    Chinese Physician Lee Meng Liang
    blk84 bedok north st4 01-35
    67832768


    He already moved to Bedok... I'm having problems with my shoulder for a few months now so then I went there. He asked me if I already consulted a doctor... I said not yet. He said he's only doing a standard therapy (neck and back cracking) to all his patient regardless of the problems/pains . Good thing he's honest that he's not sure what to do about my shoulder pain and it may really not improve my condition after... he also said that if he will do his "standard therapy" there's a possibility that it may get worse. So I decided not to go for it since he's not sure about my condition.

    I just got disappointed because I thought he will touch and check my shoulder and any other related that may cause my shoulder pains. So its like "it's up to your decision" if you will take the risk considering he's unsure of what's the real problem.
