I can't take any more folk remedies, so please pardon the following diatribe. Can we stop the constant repetition of misinformation on these boards that heavy, flexible racquets are good for TE suffers. As I scan past posts, I constantly see this repeated. This is a classic example of bad inferential logic. It seems that because some folks have TE problems with light, stiff racquets, the assumption is made that the opposite, i.e. heavy, flexible racquets, are good. Gosh, if this was the case, TE would have never existed during the era of wood racquets. You want heavy, flexible racquets? Well wood makes a POG look like a Pure Drive. Yet TE was just as prevalent when wood racquets were used as it is now. TE is the result of cumulative trauma (or in some cases sudden trauma) to the ligaments and tendons around the elbow. Bad technique can accelerate or uncover the problem. Light, stiff racquets can encourage bad technique. But light, stiff racquets do not cause TE on their own. An elbow already suffering from cumulative trauma will go bad even with great technique and a 13 oz, 50 flex racquet. To the extent a heavy frame forces you to change technique, it may help. But it does not resolve the problem. In fact hanging too much weight off the end of your arm can make things worse in many cases. Everyone who encourages TE suffers to rest, let the problem heal, then work on technique are on the right track. Everyone else needs to encourage this regimen and stop repeating the bad logic of heavy, flexible frames. Okay, I feel better.
