Tennis elbow.
« on: December 10, 2017, 04:55:34 AM »

Anyone playing cricket with tennis elbow problems? How do you deal with it - longer recovery time or complete rest/therapy? Any tips and tricks on improving my situation?

@sanredrose. I had it a few years back, went to a sports physiotherapist, did the exercises and a little rest as prescribed. It was gone in 4 weeks

These are similar

Had it very badly some years back. Had acupuncture which cleared it up and has never come back.

@jblowe @Seniorplayer @Northern monkey @beaver5 - Thanks all for your inputs. Did you suffer tennis elbow on the top hand or bottom hand? For me its the top which makes it more confusing, because most people have these problems with their bottom hand.

Both
And dodgy wrists too

I just try to limit batting to match days

There's tons on YouTube and on here

I've also started exercising with kettle bells and stretching a lot more
I drive a lot so I try and move my hand position on the steering wheel etc

Basically find out the causes and limit them
Then work on treatment

Did anyone make any kit changes because of tennis elbow? I mean did you start using lighter weight bats or apply an elbow strap or something during batting?

Top hand can't use any bat over 2lb 7 ounce  have to use an high mid middle the lighter the bat the lesser the pain. Full S/H at 2lb 4 ounce keeps me pain free.

2.8 , 2.9 max plus full tuba grip on the right arm helps.

Regular exercises as given by the physio I saw who called it golfers elbow(another thread on this)

I still have it but it's eased, cannot throw over arm any longer thou, so made myself a specialist gully  :)

Ive been suffering from this during the off season walking around the house innings. Starting to worry me for the summer.

But so far im still 147 not out and have been playing my forward defensive and leg flick without fault!!!

Does hurt though.

Weight drops do look significant. I better fix my elbow issues and work on strengthening the muscles. I will keep this thread posted on my progress.

I observed I got tennis elbow when I experimented with thin handle bats the first time or holding the handle high like Gilchrist for a short blade bat to compensate the length. After I went back to regular SH with medium thick handle and my regular middle of handle grip, it went away. Of course I have always only used 2-7 or 2-8 max.
