Search for recent long TT threads on TE especially those with the CharlieFedererer tables that show healing times. Two weeks is not nearly enough time.Already stopped playing almost 2 weeks. But still painful.
Did you not play AT ALL for those two months? Because you have to not play AT ALL for 6 months for it to heal. But in the worst cases, it could take even longer and if it's really bad it could never heal and may require surgery. Sorry to give you the bad news.I mean two months.
How did you do with that injury?I think I have.
In daytime or of I am in playing, my elbow is ok and no feeling at all. But everyday when I wake up, there is a uncomfortable feeling at the inside of elbow, right at the inside end of the bone. It is not a unmanageable pain but just some kind of sore. After I move my arm little, it goes away.
How to fully recover?
I don't know. I didn't have any TE sign before. I pay full attention to my slight ge. But just one weekend overplay, I got TE and didn't recover in 2 months.How does your current injury relate to this injury in your Golfer's Elbow thread of August, 2012?
How did you do with that injury?
There are many elbow injuries besides GE & TE. How are you diagnosing what you have?
Are you an adolescent who might have special growth related issues?
It is better but not recover in two months.If you can, I'd suggest you get some physical therapy.
Get the arm treated by a professional if it doesn't feel better after 2 months of rest.
Hope is not a method.
It takes a long time for tennis elbow to heal.
This seems really puzzling to most.
That is because in their experience, most other conditions they have had get better much faster.
But most have not had tendon injuries before.
While tendons are strong, they heal very slowly.
The way they heal is for the body to lay down protein strands into the areas that have the small tendon tears that comprise tennis elbow.
Those protein strands look a lot like the similar flimsy strands that make up a spider's web.
Like a spiders web, those strands are easy to break with any movement.
It is only over many weeks that those strands are bound together - just like the many strands in a rope or cable are bound together to form one strong rope or cable.
The problem is that with early movement, the ends of the tendon pull apart again, tearing the fragile protein strands.
The body has to start over again.
So stick with the red Flexbar for a fairly long time.
Indeed, if it hurts to use the red Flexbar, you should hold on even using this for now.
The idea of using the Flexbar is to do just enough movement that the new healing tissue won't "stick" to adjacent muscles or tendons - but instead glide smoothly past one another.
The place for the green flexbar is for when you can easily work with the red one and have no pain.
So pain will be your guide to whether the inflammation is subsiding enough to move on to the next step.
Don't go back to tennis too soon and disrupt all the healing that has already started until you have done the exercises with the green flexbar for a few weeks and the arm has been actually strengthened.
The above is a best case scenario. Often, progress is more of a two steps forward, one step backward kind of progression.
Therefore, many do better with the guidance of a therapist.
I do hope you are better "soon" - but realize with this process that soon is still likely many weeks away.
It sounds like you love tennis too much to hurry back and then have have to miss even more.
