    I remember when I busted my elbow in a kick boxing match the summer before my first college tennis season. I was a fighter with "potential" they said, and there was a freak accidental hit where his shin made contact with my elbow. Long story short, my tendon's got inflamed to the point where I was in constant pain for 6 months. My doctor prescribed first-generation celebrex. Yeah, bad idea.

    Now I know better. . .If you are having inflammation problems, check out Zyflamend by New Chapter, Liquid Joint, or Mangosteen. These are all natural and have done wonders for my inflamation and soreness from working out. Just a friendly suggestion. :)

    Whatever happened to rest and ice?

    I tried that with the injury, and it did nothing. I was at the trainer everyday for over an hour with heating pads and ice packs. I didn't help. Looking back, I would have done things differently. I fully agree that ice and rest are truly needed but, every now in then, a little help is nice. Also, that celebrex gave me stomach ulcers. :( I don't think the new formulation does that though.

    Over 10 years ago, both Celebrex and Vioxx worked miracles for my arthritic knee. Felt 10 years younger. Ice and rest help my knee as well. Currently trying Zyflamend and am so far underwhelmed with the results. How long did it take for you to feel results?

    I would suggest avoiding sports where the object of your opponent is to beat you into unconsciousness, break a few of your ribs, inflict a skull fracture, destroy your knee joint, etc. These sorts of injuries might have implications for your tennis game. :)

    Hope your elbow gets better. Injuries like that can take a long time to heal properly (if they ever do.)
