I am really surprised that people who suffer from TE have never heard of this technique before! I suffered quite badly from TE a few months ago and did a search on the internet which came up with several sites that recommended the same or similar stretches. I also went to see a physiotherapist who also recommended the same stretch.
I'm not trying to be rude, but what treatment was recommended to those of you with TE ?

i am only on the third day doing the stretch, today i can straighten my arm which i cant do without pain previously.
this is the only treatment i have tried so far and it works. i will spread it among all my playing buddies.

Yeah .... My physiotherapist also ask me to do this stretching regularly after treatment. Plaster it for two days, then ok after all until now

I just went to see a physiatrist this morning. the medicine is so expensive!!! plus, i was forced to schedule 6 physical teraphy sessions with ultrasound for 2 weeks. I just hope this would be gone as soon as possible.

I've been having mild to moderate Golfer's Elbow pain ever since I started playing badminton again after a 8yr departure. Not sure how it started, but probably the lack of strength in my arm muscles and me playing too much. For the past month or so, the pain has worsened, lasting longer than 3-4 days. Plus, I'm training pretty hard once a week with a coach.
I found this thread yesterday afternoon and started stretching according to the website. Also stretched a couple of times this morning, and now 80% of the pain is gone!! I was very worried about the pain and the severity of the issue since I have a tournament to play in 1.5 weeks. Now I think I will be at least be able to play a couple of games in the tourney.
Thanks to the OT for finding this site!!!

Here we go....Hope it helps
The Problem = Tennisarm
The solution = Strechting
Do you really have a tennisarm? Diagnosis
Here is what to do: STRETCHING of the triggering muscle and tendon.
How to do the exercise / fotos
the animated version
Use about 5-10 Minutes per day for that exercise, hold the stretch at least 10-20 seconds at the maximum point, it might hurt a bit. The pain sould be gone about 1-2 minutes after the session, otherwise you do it to hard or too long. Also the pain should not be stronger the next day, otherwise reduce the force while stretching a bit. More force does not make the healing faster!
Do this 2-3 times per "session". Do a session about 4-5 times per day, you can also do that exercise with arms on your back (less obvious, depending on situation) or in the car (hand upper surface between your legs on the car seat) f.i. while waiting on a red light or in jam etc.
Mosts important do not spare your arm of anything in your regular day (even tennis, only if the paint is just too much to take) saving your arm will make the problem worse. That's why most of the time turning in bed at night is a pain, because it has not been moving for some time.
Do that stretching extensively before, between and after tennis (or the Activity which might cramp that muscle).
[Maybe you should also build up some of your muscles for the tennis in particular and ask a pro to check your game for bad hand/arm-positions, I'm not an expert in that, most tennisarms or golferarms worldwide are not caused by tennis or gold but by age (30-40 years old) a weak point that someday just apears, maybe triggered by pc-work (moving the mouse/tipping) or some other repetitive manual work.]
With stretching you should notice a significant improvement within days, even more in 2-4 weeks (have patience and consitance with the exercises!). Then in 2-3 months all should be gone, but you will need to continue the stretching, with less sessions per day for a while.
The tennisarm is a cold inflammation, to cool it will make it worse, to warm it will not help either. That tendon (muscle leading from middle finger over top of your arm to the elbow just got a bit shorter because of a permanent cramp and no stretching. After some time the point where the tendon is fixed to the bone gets sore/hurts which starts a never ending vicious cycle of pain = more cramp = more pain. You cut that cycle by stretching which relieves the pull on the hurting point.
It is common that tennisarms "burn out" (the pain goes away and stays away) after 1,5 - 2 years because the nervecells that send the pain information are transformed in other (hard) tissue, but stretching will make that wait time easier, because that pain (and the sparing/saving most do, which does not help but make worse!) takes away life quality and depresses often psychologically (constantly reminded by pain, not beeing able to do your normal activities that make you feel good).
