do you think casual glucosamine intake will help prevent future tennis elbow? or at least help in doing so

My advice is do EVERYTHING (that can't hurt) you possibly can- Glucosamine, arnica, wobenzym-n. Not to mention ice, massage and PT.

I think it is a great idea as a preventative, but I would start when you are in grade school to get the best effect.

Are you using any vibrating damping on your racket? I would perfer you using the worm damping that gamma has thats work really good and help keep the racket nice and smooth.

Nope. Am using it effectively for my knees, but no effect on TE that I can speak of.

My knee's started bothering me 7 or 8 years ago, and Glucosomine and Condroyten really seemed to help. I've been taking them 7 or 8 years now, but I got tennis elbow about 6 monthes ago. So, I wouldn't say it's a good TE preventative.
