Prevention and maintenance
Many occupations and sports require the repeated use of forearm muscles, so this condition is fairly common. We recommend that you use the techniques given in the video above to maintain your forearm muscles as a preventative measure, or to address minor issues early.
Once problems develop
If caught relatively early correcting it may be as simple as treating the forearm muscles plus temporarily restricting activity or using a brace. If the muscular condition has been there for a while the muscle may have itself lost strength and flexibility. In that case some stretching and strengthening exercises may be needed. Please note these are for rehabilitation purposes only. Although often given to relieve tennis elbow it makes no sense to treat an overuse injury by stressing it more.
More complex problems
The application of needles, laser and other therapy without taking care of the trigger points in the muscles is inappropriate. However, they may be useful to help assist the elbow to heal once this stress is removed.
