Tendonitus/golfers elbow update 9 months after physio gave me specific exercises to do for 6 months, no exercises for last 3 months here is the update:

I can now bend my elbow and lift it up to shoulder level and back towards the centre of the back with no pain....

So....it appears to have got better. I can bowl in the nets with no specific pain like before only the normal stiffness you get being as old has been.

Throwing I don't know about, havnt tried and I'm not sure I'm going to because that's where the original problem came from. To counter this during games I was whipping it in underarm-this then over compensated to give a painful elbow problem.

Last season I 'bowled a few in' from the outfield ring and got away with it so without wanting to risk a throw with the season coming up I wondered if any of the other sufferers 'bowl it in' or do something else.

I'm playing with lads on my side far younger and fitter than me and the oppo all have guys in their twenties so don't want to be a liability in the field-batting I can still hold my place with the best in my team.

My mate told me originally when I got the injury your shoulder goes after 40 and you won't get it back. back in the day I could hurl it in from most of the field.  :)

I had tennis elbow and was told by my GP it would come and go but never completely go away.
He knew I played cricket and advised me NOT to throw the ball  hard as doing so could start it hurting.
So now I field at mid on or mid off  about 6 feet from the  non strikers batting crease.

I've been stuck in slips for the last few seasons, thought that would keep me out of trouble, but managed to break my finger tip, so god knows what I'm gonna do this year.
I always preferred fielding at mid on/ off

I think bowling the ball in , is pretty much expected,from gents of a certain age, unfortunately.
And I'm way past that age

Yes fielding at slip is the area where you more likely to sustain a finger injury especially your finger tips.
At least fielding at mid on or mid off  close to the stumps you can hand the ball back to the bowler reducing the risk of elbow and shoulder injury.

I had tennis elbow few years back and it took me almost an year to heal. Few things which worked for me were:
Always be active as you need blood flow in elbow.
Do lot of reverse curls with very light weight. I used an empty bar to do them.
Search about trigger point therapy online. Basically I used to press and rotate the painful area with thumb. I certainly regard this as most important routine on the road to recovery.
Only use forearm support when exercising or playing. Do not wear them unnecessarily.

good post mav if you have a particular forearm protector that has worked out ok please list the make, sounds like its going to be necessary for the start of the season

cheers...there's a few of us with this complaint so might assist some others on here as well

I have just been diagnosed with tennis elbow, and there is no way I will allow my throw to disappear, direct hit run out from just in front of deep square leg very close to the rope on Sunday!

So my physio has taped me up, given me exercises/stretches to do and I have ordered this to help during games

I have a few different versions of these . I found them useful for throwing , for using when doing gym work , repetitive activities where you might exacerbate the tennis elbow via r.s.i etc. However , i found them next to useless when batting . My forearm would cramp up and then the injury would feel like it was worse/more painful ( i did experiment with tightening to various degrees,  and this problem was what led to me buying a few different types , but re batting , none helped). Others may have different results/experience,  but that's how it was for me.
