Re: Tennis Elbow

I had this when I started training more than 4 times/week. For me it was aggravated by kotegaeshi and sometimes shihonage. I used 'kiatsu' a pressure wrap and relaxed intensity in training and it slowly improved. My physician called it 'golfers elbow' and said it is common in certain sports and usually the 'athlete' won't rest properly so most just find a therapeutic Tx and alteration in the activity. I have to wonder if i built up enough scar tissue to keep everything stuck together better. I know that is not traditional thinking...just sayin'! Perhaps we build scar tissue in these areas for a reason?
