Do Golfers also get Tennis Elbow? Yes, quite often, in fact.

Curiously, a glance at golf magazine websites, medical studies and surveys suggests that not only do golfers get Tennis Elbow, they actually suffer this injury more often than Golfer's Elbow!

(Although, statistically, there are many more cases of both injury types among people who don't play tennis or golf!)

In this podcast Allen Willette, 'Tennis Elbow Tutor' covers these related questions and more:

  • What's the difference between Tennis and Golfer's Elbow?
  • How and where do golfers develop this injury?
  • Why do golfers suffer Tennis Elbow more often than Golfer's Elbow?

  1. As long as your injury isn’t TOO severe, And…
  2. You do the right things to treat it in the process.

In the spirit of helping you continue to play, this podcast covers 5 key guidelines / tips…

Should you continue working out with weights or doing any kind of upper-body strength-training exercise if you have Tennis Elbow?

Does it make any difference what originally caused your injury? – Whether it was originally caused by:

  • Weight lifting in the first place?
  • From playing tennis or golf?
  • From computer use?
  • OR from heavy, physical work?

Allen Willette from Tennis Elbow Classroom, answers these and other Tennis Elbow related exercise questions in this episode.

Your needs will vary, depending on whether your injury originates from low-intensity / high duration work, like computing…

Medium to high intensity (but shorter duration) sports like tennis and golf…

Or long-duration, heavy, physical work, like construction.

What's the first thing they tell you to do when you have Tennis Elbow?

"Reduce" the inflammation – Right? Well, here's why you can forget all about that!…

Inflammation the biggest Tennis Elbow fallacy of all time – And you don't actually have to chase, treat or worry about it.

In-depth post, video and podcast here:

https://tenniselbowclassroom.com/what-is-tennis-elbow-1/tennis-elbow-tendonitis-inflammation-myth/

Here's why you don’t have to put up with the stomach-churning pills, the constant icing and the damaging Cortisone shots…

Why the inflammation-fighting, reducing / "managing" approach to treating Tennis Elbow (also known as 'Lateral Epicondylitis' or 'Elbow Tendonitis') is a complete dead end and may do you more harm than good.

(Despite everything you may have read or been told AND in spite of the fact that your Tennis Elbow may FEEL like it’s inflamed!)
