    Check out the theraband flexbar. I've used it before and it works well. It's also the only scientifically viable method of improving this condition, even more effective than rest, antiinflammatories, or surgery: http://www.amazon.com/TheraBand-Y0A2...ywords=flexbar

    The red one provides just the right amount of resistance for the exercise you want to do, shown below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYMu3d7QNyg


    Can anyone vouch? I have golfers elbow (medial epicondylitis)

  4. I can't vouch for it, but there is a a brace they have for this, it just wraps around the upper part of your forearm, making your body think the tendon is shortened and it relieves pain, doctors also like to do an anti inflammatory like aleve in addition to the brace.

    Look up: "Armaid" . Looks like an medieval torture device and it's overpriced too.
    I had golfers in one arm- and tennis in the other arm. Both problems gone, and did not stop training.
    If you really buy it, check the videos how to use it first. It is, hands down, the best remedy for forearm tendonitis.
    Used it an hour before gym and right after gym, works immediately after first use and arms get better every day.
    Avoided at first exercises who caused most pain (pull ups, hammer curls) , now doing all again, after 3 month of use.

    non-effective methods tried before:
    -icing (little help)
    -straps (somewhat help)
    -Flexbars -all colors (not really)
    -squeeze balls ( waste)
    -infrared heat lamp (nothing)
    -Cissus,MSM,DMSO,Chondriotine,G lucosamine NSAIDs (not really)
    -forearm exercises (not really)

  6. Ah, I forgot, it hurts using the "Armaid", because you are virtually squeezing your muscles and tendons above comfort level. Get used to it and you will heal, guaranteed.

    Looking into Armaid myself. I was researching the Graston Technique and this kept being shown in search. It is overpriced for plastic.

    Way overpriced, but I would have paid much more, knowing it works as it does.
    Personally , I don't need the leg strap, nor the different plastic balls. If you are handy, you could easily build your own from wood, it really is nothing more then a big plier . Remembering your back problems, if its muscle or tendons related, a flat board on the floor with a wooden ball attached could be the solution, using your body weight to apply pressure.

    Check this out, far cheaper than Graston tools. but does the same thing. It's still an over-priced piece of metal, but definitely worthwhile:

    I would prefer the Armaid, as it has the "squeeze mechanism". This all looks like "bogus" , but who never tried it will miss out on something extraordinary.
