    :wtc:, been resting and avoiding lifting, just doing cardio and abs. Was doing legs but slowed down. It's been over 6 weeks and still hurts. Anyone do the surgery??? I really want to just so I can lift again.:sadwavey:

    My freshmen year in HS, I had pretty severe tennis elbow. You know what eventually helped it? Lifting weights! After I started lifting for a few months, the tennis elbow went away, and it's never been back.

    I'm sure he got it from lifting weights.

    ehh, cortisone steriods are bad....although they give you some(with emphasis) relief in most cases, it doesn't completely cure the problem. Furthermore, it's been seen that these shots weaken the area's joints/tissues

    I have golfers elbow (same as tennis just a different spot on the arm/elbow) and I went to a sports therapist and it's mint now. Massaged it and used the ultrasound machine on it to break up scar tissue (or something like that) and gave me exercises to directly work it out. Look in to it, worked wonders for me.

    Yes I did it doing dead lifts/bent over rows. I was getting so strong I guess I just pushed my self to hard. Learning from my mistakes...
