Tennis Elbow Rehab Exercises

If you suffer from Tennis Elbow than you’ll want to check out the video clips below because they contain some great exercises to reduce pain and help you get back to normal training ASAP.

What Is Tennis Elbow???

Tennis elbow is a form of elbow tendonitis. This is a painful condition that occurs when the tendons in your elbow are overworked and inflamed. It’s caused by repetitive motions of the hand and arm.

Despite the name, tennis elbow can occur in people who don’t play tennis (even though it is a common injury among tennis players). People who do a lot of repetitive motions, either through working out in the gym, playing sports, or doing physically demanding labor work often get tennis elbow (i.e. mechanics, carpenters, painters, butchers, plumbers, musicians, athletes, etc.)

The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist.

The key to treating tennis elbow is to avoid further straining of the aggravated tendons. Wearing a tennis elbow brace can help support the tendons and keep them in proper alignment, which often reduces pain and discomfort. And you can also do some rehab exercises as outlined in the videos below:

    Hi Lee, lately I have been dealing with some golfer’s elbow and I was wondering if you had any suggestions for dealing with this type of injury. Thanks

    Nice video Lee, I’ve been suffering from tennis elbow for quite some time now, tried physio and ultrasound to break up the scar tissue but it just returns. Maybe I’m grabbing the steering wheel too hard but that’s what Evos make you do 🙂 Hope to see you at the next autocross event.

    So what is it called if the pain is not on the inside or outside but the backside of the arm, almost like the ball of the elbow is bruised on the triceps side (as opposed to the forearm side). Hurts like heck when doing French Presses and I think that’s what caused it to begin with.

  • Hi Lee,
    Thanks for the video and the info it really helps.
    It so happen my tennis elbow has been hurting.
    this will help.

    As always thanks for the tips. I’ve been following these posts for sometime now and have benefitted from them. Currently I’ve got golf elbow in my right elbow. It’s been really bothering me lately. Your post came just in time. I will start using the lat pull down bar tonight when I work out. Also I will invest in a brace. One question i have is how long does it take to get over this? Also should i be doing the exercises several times everyday. Example once in the morning and then again in the evening? Also I’ve been putting ice on it esp after working out. Is this helpful for the inflammation as well?

    Im 59 years old but have lifted weights for many years. My pain goes from my forearm into my lower bicep especially on concentration curls. Is this the same type of condition, and do these rehab exercises apply?
    Thanks. By the way you have some excellent workout routines on your website that keeps working out from getting dull. I would appreciate a email response to my inquiry.
    Thank you.

  • joe a,

    You can certainly try doing these exercises, they are great for balancing out your forearm development which can help prevent and heal problems caused by muscle imbalances.
