Am I through with top level Tennis-Injury Explained-Help requested
I started playing Tennis after a long Hiatus about 8-9 months ago to train my then 11 year old son.
I'm 38 and have never had injuries, not real injuries. First I ripped my plantaris muscle, incredible pain. Then I ripped my second one. Then my neck, then in the emergency room with a pulled tendon in my ankle/foot.
That's all gone, but one thing has stayed, and I simply can't play high performace Tennis. About 3-4 months ago, on the opposite side of my elbow I had pain/weakness. I mean to hit the ball hurt bad each time, sometimes just picking up the racquet hurts. So unlike my other injuries I actually did give it a rest for a week. But once playing again it came back, so after 3-4 months it's still with me.
Anyone know how to fix this? It's not just pain, but weakness. It's like a dull pain, sharp when I hit the ball.
