Boy, Gary, I just had a ton of body work done to correct muscular imbalances. I had a pretty bad case of Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis). It had nerve and tendon components, both. You might want to check out the thread I started, “ART Case Study.”
As far as supplements go, I’d recommend that you pick up your intake of glucosamine HCl, MSM and Vitamin C. They’ll help with the repair and healing of the tendon.
Give it a break as the doctor said, but see if you can get some ART to fix the underlying problem. Otherwise you’ll find it flares up from time to time.
Tendons aren’t very well vascularized, so healing takes longer. If you do end up aggravating it in a workout, take an ice cube and work the area when you get home from the gym.
Also and finally, check out “Eccentric Exercise, A Solution to Tendonitis” by Peter Blanchonette in the article archives.
Good luck to you!
