Hey guys, just need some insight into an injury one of my clients is currently out of action with. He is basically getting pain up & down his left forearm, says it is agony at times. When he grips something wide it seems to make it even more painful, its painful to the point were he couldn’t lift a paper without feeling the effects. The main point of pain (although it runs right down to his wrist) is the lateral part of the forearm just in from the elbow.
He has actually been to see a physio (who is supposedly well recommended) & after 3 weeks its no better at all. The physio has been giving him all sorts of exercises to do, a lot of them directly don’t even stimulate the injured muscle.
We don’t really know how he actually got the injury, I thought it possibly could have been the Reverse Barbell Curls that I put into his program & because that was his first time he’s possibly had a weaker left arm & thus actually damaged it from doing too much. Now he did come to the gym two more times & he said he was fine & he can’t remember doing anything in those training sessions.
The physio actually said he has tennis elbow, if it is then what would your advice be? If you think its something else I’d be glad to hear any verdicts.
