If its your tendons and you don't want to take motrin, eat lots of pineapple cores.

Thanks very much!

What amount do you recommend, I haven't heard abt pineapple cores before, but googled it and it seems worth the try. And do you put it in the blender or how do you prepare it, please? :thumb:

I'm not sure there is a set amount, I've just heard of it from people doing it in the dirt jumping / bmx world when injured ha.

Massage 3x a day 5-10 minute, use whatever targets the area, rollers, fingers, door nob. 5-10 mins not just a rub. Stay away from NSIADs they prolong healing. Prolotherapy. Stretch if it hurts your doing it right.

Does the pain go to your elbow? Muscle imbalance and knots can lead to tendonitis. Here’s what I do. There is not any great definitive scientific research on what works so you need to find what works for you.

Do Tyler twists exercises to strengthen and lengthen forearm muscles with a theraband flexbar. Link for bar below. YouTube videos for proper instruction. Make sure you don’t load and release tension on the same repetition.

Finger stretch excercises with rubber band. Link for my favorite bands below.

Use a small 1.25 inch runner ball to roll into the elbow and arm muscles.

Also stretch and don’t sleep on top of your arm. I’m unsure about controlling inflammation with ice and ibuprofen. Some say inflammation is good and helps healing, others say it can be damaging. The science is unclear. If there is a lot of pain and swelling I go for ice and ibuprofen.

Hey - this sounds quite similar to an issue I've had, and it wasn't caused my kiting, but kiting definitely excerbated it. I would pain in the middle of my bicep shooting down into my elbow from my shoulder. It would get to where I couldn't do a pushup. Simple fix - active release therapy. I'm was pretty skeptical about it, but it most definitely works if you find the right person.

PM me if you have any questions.

most of the time it is just a "misalignement " I got it alot wakeboarding ...it is hard to explain the problem starts when you are not stong enough anymore to hold the bar with all 5 fingers ...than you just holding it with 4 fingers except the thumb ....this brings an misalignement between ulna and radius ...
I hope this is somehow understandable ...it is hard to describe , my physio showed me in person than it made more sence

well you have 2 options

1. you hang your arm over a chair and put your thumb through the hole on a about 5kg plate and let gravity do its job to even it out a bit ... of the

2. stand upright , hold your arm to the side bend the arm at the ellbow , let the lower part of the arm hang down , your thumb is now facing your body - turn it backwards as far as possible and than straighten the arm ....you will feel the strech ....than bend an strighten back and forth ...
