Hello to all,
I’ve got a lovely case of tendonosis (NOT tendonitis)in the outer portion of my right upper forearm, in the elbow area. If I make a fist and roll it upward as if twisting the throttle on a motorcycle I feel a GOOD deal of pain.
I have had this for several months, thusly it is not tendonitis, and it is quite bothersome. The pain is constant and is interfering with bicep training.
My doc diagnosed tendonitis and gave me cortisone injections which were somewhat effective but have “worn off”. My reading leads me towards tendonosis, would IGF-1 help regenerate tissue in this area? I read an article where a small amount of an inflammatory agent was injected into the area to stimulate healing.
The theory is that inflammation causes the body to call for repairs to the affected area? I believe it is an experimental procedure and probably not covered by insurance as of yet.
Would a cycle or more of IGF-1 be of any help?
Thanks all in advance, Tim
