Do Tennis Elbow Braces Help Your Tendons Heal?

Do Tennis Elbow Braces Help Your Tendons Heal? | Tennis Elbow Treatment | Scoop.it

Pain relief vs. healing – A key distinction – But one that’s easy to miss when one is in urgent pursuit of relief and needs to get on with the necessities of life.


Braces and other supports DO seem to relieve pain, and it’s only natural to assume that if it’s feeling better it must be getting better. It must be healing – But is it? Will the brace help the injury HEAL?

IS There A "Typical" Tennis Elbow Recovery Time?

Why is it that some Tennis Elbow injuries take mere weeks to heal, while others take months – or even years to fully recover from? Allen Willette, from Tennis Elbow Classroom tackles this challenging question.
TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

There's no doubt the recovery time for Tennis Elbow is highly variable - as in "all over the map" - One thing is almost certain though, resting, hoping and waiting is not the path to tendon healing. This article explains why:

Tennis Elbow Injuries: Should You "Rest" Them As Much As Possible?

Tennis Elbow Injuries: Should You "Rest" Them As Much As Possible? | Tennis Elbow Treatment | Scoop.it

They usually say “You should rest it” when you have Tennis Elbow, but this may not be the best treatment advice.


Learn why tendons need a lot more than just rest and "R.I.C.E." – And why they don't necessarily heal themselves while you're resting, hoping and waiting!

TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

Rest is the first step in the R.I.C.E. protocol – But this RICE advice doesn't usually apply to the treatment of Tennis Elbow, and it's a common misconception to think that tendons just heal themselves when given enough time and rest.

Don't Bother Icing Your Tennis Elbow?

Don't Bother Icing Your Tennis Elbow? | Tennis Elbow Treatment | Scoop.it

Treating your Tennis Elbow with ice may make it feel better temporarily but it's not likely to  help you heal.

 

But what about the inflammation?… All the medical websites and authorities say you should ice your Tennis Elbow to reduce inflammation!


Could they all be wrong?

TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

Old myths die hard. They still talk about "inflammation" and recommend ice therapy for Tennis Elbow, even though it's been known for decades that the injury is usually degenerative and not inflammatory - http://goo.gl/bHhj1

Tennis Elbow Treatments - Or Just Symptom Chasing?

Tennis Elbow Treatments - Or Just Symptom Chasing? | Tennis Elbow Treatment | Scoop.it
Tennis Elbow treatment has traditionally meant ice, anti-inflammatory drugs, braces, bands and Cortisone shots, but do these “treatments” actually help your healing process – Or do they only mask your pain and other symptoms?
TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

There's a world of difference between treating the symptoms of Tennis Elbow and treating the injury itself.

Cortisone Shots For The Treatment Of Tennis Elbow: Dangerous Damaging AND Ineffective?

Cortisone Shots For The Treatment Of Tennis Elbow: Dangerous Damaging AND Ineffective? | Tennis Elbow Treatment | Scoop.it
A quick-fix Tennis Elbow cure, Cortisone proven for short-term pain relief – But long term? Research says: "Bad news. Don’t look for healing here"
TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

When it comes to the treatment of Tennis Elbow, the Cortisone shot is the epitome of the quick fix cure – It can often wipe away pain like magic, sometimes providing complete relief in the short term.

 

Research reveals, however, that the powerful but often fleeting benefits of Cortisone can come at a very high cost in the form of long-term and sometimes very serious consequences. Is the pain relief worth it? – And does it actually have anything to do with healing the injury?

Do Tennis Elbow Braces Assist Healing Or Only Relief?

Do Tennis Elbow Braces Assist Healing Or Only Relief? | Tennis Elbow Treatment | Scoop.it

The Tennis Elbow brace was in the news recently, in a Wall Street Journal article, by Laura Johannes: "Bracing for the Pain From Golf and Tennis" - The claim was that braces relieve pain, but that's hardly controversial. The real question is, "Do they help the injury heal!?"

TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

Braces, bands and other supports do seem to relieve Tennis Elbow pain temporarily - But healing is another matter. We have to remember - (especially in this symptom-centric Allopathic system) - not to conflate pain relief with healing. http://tenniselbowclassroom.com/treatment-for-tennis-elbow/

A "Two-Minute Tennis Elbow Tutorial" on the question of braces, bands, straps and supports for treating Tennis Elbow.

Tennis Elbow Treatment: Does R.I.C.E. And Rest = Rust?

Tennis Elbow sufferers are often told, “You should rest it!” – But this may not be the most sensible treatment advice after all – at least not absolutely.
TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

True Tennis Elbow is rarely a traumatic, ‘Acute’ injury that would benefit from  any part of the R.I.C.E. treatment protocol (Rest, Ice, Etc.)


It’s usually a degenerative condition known as ‘Tendinosis,’ which requires a completely different treatment approach (which still doesn't seem to be universally recognized.)

Cortisone Shots For Tennis Elbow: Is The Relief Worth The Risk?

Allen Willette of TennisElbowClassroom.com answers the Quora question: 'What are the downsides of Cortisone injection for Tennis Elbow?'

TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

Research has shown that the powerful but often fleeting upside of using Cortisone shots to relieve Tennis Elbow symptoms can come at a high cost.

 

There are significant, well-known downsides to Cortisone injections and controversy continues over those risks as well as the question of whether the shots have any long-term effectiveness in the first place...
