I remember when I busted my elbow in a kick boxing match the summer before my first college tennis season. I was a fighter with "potential" they said, and there was a freak accidental hit where his shin made contact with my elbow. Long story short, my tendon's got inflamed to the point where I was in constant pain for 6 months. My doctor prescribed first-generation celebrex. Yeah, bad idea. Now I know better. . .If you are having inflammation problems, check out Zyflamend by New Chapter, Liquid Joint, or Mangosteen. These are all natural and have done wonders for my inflamation and soreness from working out. Just a friendly suggestion.
