    HI,

    I recently started using the theraband flexbar for my tennis elbow and it worked. However, I noticed when i used the flexbar, it kind of hurt my hand as i relaxed my right hand to let the preload on the flexbar dissipate. If you do the Tennis Elbow excercise, you hopefully know what I am talking about. Maybe I put too much of a preload on the flexbar (the medium/green bar)? I also notice a pain as I twist the flexbar to put the preload on it. (video on how to do the TE excercise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV-RjM_Y_hc)

    Anyhow, my hand hurts during and after tennis now. The pain is generally located along/near where my index finger is attached to my hand...between my first knuckle and wrist. Tennis elbow is gone though.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? Do i need to stop with the flex bar and go back to wearing my tennis elbow strap around my forearm? Any excercise or massage that would help?

    Moderation.

    It sounds like you need to stop with the flexbar for a little bit, then start up slowly to a level slightly less than you were using it before.

    Also there are dumbell wrist curls, reverse curls and rotational exercises that won't mimic, but instead compliment the Flexbar to prevent a recurrence of your tennis elbow.
