Top Five Mistakes to Avoid When Using Flextend http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06dE_-oa0wQ
I don't have experience with the Flextend. It seems it was made largely to treat carpal tunnel syndrome of the wrist.
Just based on how it works, I would think the twisting motion of the Theraband Flexband http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB3TVb8a5mk
would be a better exercise for the muscles/tendons involved in tennis elbow, but it certainly does seem that comeback had great results using the Flextend.
I hope comeback sees this and can explain further the specific exercises he used - how much flexion and extention and how much twisting exercises. Also I would love to know if he first used the Theraband Flexbar without results.
Hi Charlie, i tried everything and i am a certified trainer,4.5 tournament player and teaching pro..The flexbar is ok if your arm is 100% but if it is injured the flexbar will make it worse..i really had a bad case of TE but the glove rehabed it..as for your questions, there is another video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVhlgBDy_F8
which explains it better..email me if you have any further questions firstname.lastname@example.org
