I had a sports medicine doctor advise me to use the flex bar. He said it is used to stretch out the tendons. keep the muscles and tendons working and loose to bring blood to the area. Its the blood supply that helps the healing. He claims if you just rest it is actually not as helpfully as using the flex bar and other exercises. You need the blood to flow there. the tendons get very little normal blood flow.
