Casting Arm Pain Relief

Tennis/Casting Elbow Pain Relief

For many years prior to dicovering a simple exercise; I suffered from recurring bouts with the terrible pain of tennis elbow.

And like most people who suffer with "tennis elbow"; my pain was not caused by playing tennis, golf, or any sport. It was caused by hard physical work like millions of Americans do every day. My tennis elbow pain was caused by activities like driving nails with a hammer, digging post holes, and cutting and splitting 12 cords of firewood each year.

As a bass fisherman I would sometimes make hundreds of casts per day and this would result in aggrevation of an already painful situation.

At times the pain in my right arm would be so bad that I had to support it perfectly still in a sling for up to 2 weeks at a time.Pain would radiate up and down my arm from my hand to into my shoulder.

From time to time I would be free of pain, but it always returned when I did the strenuous kinds of work activities that I needed and liked to do.
I tried every kind of pain relieving cream that I could find. I tried physical therapy and self applied massage therapy. I tried a number of exercises but none of them provided much relief. I wore several different kinds of elbow support bands. I took repeated cortisone injections from more than one physician. The cortisone injections provided wonderful pain relief, but it was always temporary. Most of the things I tried provided some temporary relief; but I was never completely free of tennis elbow pain for 20 years.

Eventually I found one simple exercise that relieved my tennis elbow pain. In addition the exercise strengthened my arm and made if less susceptible to the pain that can return with strenuous use of the arm.

The only "tool" I use with the exercise is one 2 pound dumbbell. I start the exercise with the dumbbell clenched in my hand and my arm extended straight in front of me raised to a 90 degree angle with my body. I found it was important to have my hand clenched; so when I did not have a dumbbell, I used some object that allowed me to wrap my hand around it resulting in a clenched fist. My starting point also includes having my wrist and arm rotated as far to left as possible. I then move my arm from a position of pointing straight away from me in the front, to a position of straight out to the right hand side of my body.
As I am moving my entire arm in this arc, I am simultaneously rotating my hand/wrist/arm as far as I can move it to the right.

Then I do the reverse and move may arm back to the front of me while at the same time rotating my hand/wrist back as far to the left as I possibly can.
If I am not having major discomfort, I might do this 15 to 20 times.The degree of my pain of tennis elbow when I started the exercise would determine how many repetitions I would do. I found that too many repetitions could worsen my situation. That is not to say that my first few times I did the exercise that I did not have some pain. I usually do the exercise 2 to 3 times per day. Within 3 to 4 days I usually start seeing marked relief in my tennis elbow pain.
When exercising my left arm the movement is exactly the same.
I usually continue this exercise for a few days after the pain is gone as I have found that the exercise strengthens the parts of my arm that are susceptible to the tennis elbow pains. As my pain subsides I also usually increase the weight to a 5 pound dumbbell.

That's it. This simple exercise has worked for years any time I have had a tennis elbow pain flare up.
