    deep tissue massage and rest cured my golfer's elbow. good luck.( Doing pullups without warming up enough caused it)

    I have used these:

    The 1st on is what you want if you are trying to play with GE. It helps. It also is great to wear to help heal. I would wear it at night since it lessens the strain on the tendons.

    The 2nd one I used to get heat to that area or to keep it warm. It works for that but it is a bit tight on my forearm and kind of cuts off the circulation.

    The last one is great for getting heat to the area and has helped to heal. Though the design of the heat packs is lame. THey are too small, too prissy to heat up and too flimsy (I already popped one). But they do work.

    I think I tracked it down to my racket being too heavy and on the serve it would hurt the elbow.

    I dont doubt that the massage would help. You need blood flow to heal and the massage would help with that like the heat.

    Good luck!! Its always good to look at technique or equipment too.

    Tennis/golfers elbow treatment

    Hey man

    I have stopped using in game supports and started using this to warm up before any sport/activity, with stretching as well. Works great to get the blood flowing and I find it really helps me during tennis, golf, fishing, etc. Great thing about the treatment is that it will actual treat your golfers elbow while allowing you to play still. http://www.kingbrand.com/Tennis-Elbow.php?REF=39PV9

    Check it out, hope this helps man. Good luck

    Wearing an elbow sleeve will help but not due to the added support. It keeps the arm/elbow warm and helps blood flow.

    I have several of the sleeves for running in colder weather and they work fine.

    How does this product treat a Golfer's Elbow injury? Any references?

    Do you have any association with Kingbrand?

    I've been suffering from TE and GE for the past year or more. I think it happened or worsened due to a shoulder strain, compensation etc. I already had a very mild case of TE only for a year or more prior, but it never bothered me much.

    Band-IT works well for me.

    Also, switching to a full bed of natural gut has seemed to speed up the healing (healing while still p[laying, that is).

    All three problems are much better now. First I was wearing the Band-IT then I switched from syngut to multi to GUT as well.

    Has anyone used the red flex-bar for golfers elbow? Or is it only good for tennis elbow?

    It works for both.

    If you're right-handed, you turn it forward (clockwise) for the lateral (tennis) and backwards (counter-clockwise) for the medial.

    I use the Green one because there's one in our fitness center. I am thinking of ordering the Blue one as I'm getting used to the Green one and it's getting easier.

    So you can make your arm stronger on both sides. I have Golfer's Elbow but do it both ways to make the forearm stronger.
