update on the exercises, ive been doing them religiously for 2 weeks and there is already improvement in the elbow, things life lifting shopping bags, etc no longer result in any pain.

So.......2 weeks into 3 months of specific exercises given by the physio APPEAR to be working already.


so for those fellow sufferers get cracking with the programme   :) :)

@ppccopener

Glad to hear that you are getting somewhere and that you've had the patience and diligence to keep going. With a lot of these things (as with cricket itself!) a lot of personal motivation and application is required.

I gave myself some tennis elbow knocking a bat in with my new LV mallet! After just one day! Goes to show that with these overuse or misuse tendinopathies, it's either the work of months/years or even a day that can aggravate things. Have had to work on my knocking in technique now.

@Northern monkey - patience and diligence. And correct diagnosis! How are you doing now?

Good luck to you both

I had a problem with golfers elbow last year, which eventually turned out to be a symptom of a muscle imbalance which later caused problems with an impinged ulnar nerve.

I treated it successfully mainly with compression and working on the imbalance.

For compression I used a bicycle inner tube cut so it was flat. Wrapped it tightly around my elbow (about 2 inches above my elbow down to 2 inches below) and then flexed my elbow slowly for about a minute with it wrapped. This is pretty uncomfortable and you don't really get used to it :P I would then take off the wrapping and repeat the movement. Then reapply the wrapping and do it again. I'd try to do this 4 nights a week.

The imbalance was a general problem with my shoulder girdle so may not be applicable but that was fixed by doing resistance band pull aparts and focusing on squeezing my rhomboids. I also added supinated grip barbell rows to my workouts.

The chances are as a cricketer you will have tight pectoral muscles from throwing movements, stretching these muscles and strengthening their antagonistic muscles in the back will generally be beneficial.

Has anybody used KT tape for golfer elbow? If so, does it help?

Not golfer's elbow exactly, but I've used it for similar elbow tendon problems and it's a big help preventing pain/anything worsening during games.

K Tape is something that really interests me. I've used it several times and noticed absolutely nothing, I've also got no idea how it could possibly work, since you are only minimally restricting any movement and even then it's only holding skin in place. Yet it has benefited so many people I know.

Part of me thinks it's mostly placebo and I'm annoyed that there hasn't been any decent wide scale research or trials into it.

im going to buy some of this tape to help when the first games start.It was recommended by the physio I saw.

Again...not sure how it works but he assured me it would 'help a bit'

which is fine

A lot of the therapeutic claims made are probably rubbish, but as a clever way to apply support tape it works very well in my experience.

Good luck with that I've delayed the start of my season a bit so missing this weekends games for a bit more rehab on the elbow and shoulder but will be buying some sort of tape or band for matches.
Not allowed to throw myself thou until end of May on physios instructions.

I remember well playing as a kid with some older guys and wondering why we hid them in the field!

Yeah I've gotta field slip these days
My days of whipping the ball in from miles is long gone

My arms been playing up last couple of weeks, I'm hoping it's just because I've done lots of driving,(1200 a week!) and not because I've had a few nets

Off to the docs tonight
Got a weird pain in my forearm as well as the golfers elbow crap
Want them to refer me for physio, or at least point me in the right direction with this

Daft thing is, batting and throwing are fine, it's the rest of the time I'm struggling , drivings a nightmare and picking my kids up is hard work

may well be different in your part of the Country but in London, at least where is live, physio for non urgent is months on the waiting list.I went private to see someone quick.

So far...my excercises seem to be working, but it's long term. Yours sounds like more of a repetitive strain problem due to the long driving hours

I need someone to go through what I have to do to sort it
Hopefully I don't have to pay, but I'm not holding my breath
