Smeton's Elbow healing from LG's blue liquid
Hello, here my my past left inner elbow history(also called Golfer's elbow)
due to a nagging golfer's elbow(inner elbow pain)Golfer's elbow - MayoClinic.com I've been having a situation with it on and off for two years intill it got so bad I had to see a specialist.I cannot do Chest, triceps, shoulders, biceps forearm or back width. I can do Deadlifts, Leg exercises, hamstrings, calves, traps, and the lateral shoulder machine.
I've tryed Cissus months ago, and fish oil which seems to help some; recently though it's been hurtful pain.
Ive been taking Bromlain .5 -2 grams a day-2400 gui's per 500 dose, whicb is strong stuff by NOW foods) Ive been doing this a couple months now
Flexall 12 % menthol before bed(before bed) Im replacing this with Lg science formula.
Exercises for it from Physical therapy. I stretch and do the Pt exercise's once daily.
I'm on Controlled Labs Orange Triad which has MSM, glucosamine, chondrition, and hydroluronic acid.
I was taking naproxen (Doctors perscription for forty days) that is over and mega dosing fish oil 10-20 per day) I now do six per day.
I have been selected as a tester for LG sciences/ Thank you LG!
Right now I'm in pain on even little movements like flexing my wrists. Turning my wrist. so in order for me to progress working my way back up to , lets say Incline bench press, I'll be testing whether or not these little simple movements are completely out of pain. Than I can test if the bigger movements are painfree(chest, shoulders i.e. the bodyparts I have not been working) The best way to let the injury heal is to rest it and do exercises that don't aggravate it. I feel since I stopped lifting my elbow is feeling slightly better. I'll be training Legs, deads, won't post these because the point of this log is to heal my Elbow so I can get it back to normal(healed)
Today I rubbed on my elbow and I'll be rubbing this liquid on twice everyday. Hopefully this stuff works. I'll be posting honestly and objectively and will be gauging by doing my exercise's and gauging pain tolerance. I'll be updating my experience.Thank's you for tuning in.Follow me on facebook, twitter and youtube, where I share information and videos to help you achieve your physique goals, John Smeton Ftness

I just did my daily exercises which are:
heating pad warm up five minutes
stretch 30 seconds, over, than under
Light eccentric exercise thirty times(I use cans, when a campbell's can is not hurting Ill move up to a natty peanut butter jar, and onward, eventually I might can use five lber's , ten lber's etc)
Squeeze a squishy ball thirty times I can only squeeze it at about 60 % of my strength, farther than this and it hurt's
Wrist flex downward(no weights) thirty times (again I cannot flex hard or pain,light and very light motion)
Ice 5 minutes
pain got up to about a 3-maybe 3.5 on a scale of 1-10

This is exactly what i've been looking for. I need to come off of the cissus for a while.
06-24-2008, 06:03 PM
Heat 5 mins
squishy ball exercise's 30 x's I got up to 60 % at the end of the 30. At the beginning I could only do 20, than 30, and upward. it hurt to do 30 and over starting out
Light eccentric 30 x's(no pain)
wrist flex pain) again toward the end I could flex a lil harder.
Now I'm going to mow grass. I use my right hand a lot for pulling Ill use Ice after wards and note pain after I return.

When you mention "not much pain", how much less is that than before you started the treatment with lg's product?
On a scale of 1-10(worst) when starting compared to today?

and Aronaic acid is a pgf-2(or some kind of prog)that is a pro-inflammatory and also better for muscle growth.
Btw this is the second time Ive heard fish oil may be bad for joints in there past two days, and I have never heard this before in all my five plus years into weightlifting/Bodybuilding Community. Would like to know where this information is coming and the references/research studies for it.

heating Pad 5 mins
light eccentric(spaghetti jar)No pain
Squighy squeeze-I can squeeze it hard at the side parallel. When I squeeze any more than 30 % with arm laying on knee painful

that's it. Might try it out.
squeeze 45 % only, than after I could squeeze up tp 100 %, at the beginning anything over 45 % caused pain
wrist flex-This was ok
Today I was cleaning my room and felt some pain just doing regular stuff.

Still pain. This injury is going to take time to heal IMHO.

Cissus works similar (or maybe the exact way) of fish oil,Fish oils and flax oils (omega-3's) lower prostaglandins and PGF2a
Omega 6 raise prostaglandins and PGF2a
N-saids (Ibuprofen, aspirin etc) blunt block prostaglandin production and in recent studies shown can halt MUSCLE HYPERTROPHY completely! (think about that next time you pop a Bufferin or Adv. that is why AA(X-factor) and contained in red meats and eggs, is pro PGF-2a, and has pro-inflammatory effects. It's really very simple , if you look at the science. So many people over analyze.
Went to my specialist today. he said to give it one more month of no use than try the exercises. If they hurt we'll go to the next step, which may be more layoff time. Hopefully It'll be healed and I can at least do chest press exercises. I can do laterals for shoulders(even though Id rather do heavy presses) and I can cut bi's and tri's and forearms. Time will tell. I know time off will heal it. Just how much time is the question. Being a bodybuilder it is hard to just watch your chest(and other body parts) not grow for any time alone.
I found a way to work my chest without pain I flex it as hard as I can. At least In getting blood in their and it feels intense.
Ive been using mustard that has t uremic in it.

heating pad five minutes(this is always five minutes)
squishy ball this is getting better; however, pain. got up to maybe 80 % today
wrist flex-ouch pain .
icing five minutes
Elbow has gotten better, although not healed. again to reinforce It'll take time, and I'm willing to give myself time because it is worth it in the long run.

I tested my Incline bench today with only 135, would have went up to 185 , no spotter. I warmed up with the bar, than 2(25's), then 2(45's) did it ten times without any straining of any kind. Very smooth light and easy, virtually pain free. The only time it did hurt is upon lift-off at the top and lockout. I had to get a spotter on the 145 to liftoff and rack it for me. Other than that I'm going to slowly start trying exercises and calibrate. Very Happy about this.Something was popping on the eccentric, either shoulders or elbow.

I just received two bottles of the LG Juice today and was curious as to how you are applying it since its liquid? Pouring into hand and massage in? Applying to cottonball? Just curious what others are doing. How much to apply? Just a thin once over or several quick applications?
07-02-2008, 04:57 PM
I pour it on my elbow , just a lil tilt so not much comes in. Than rub in it with my hand.
07-03-2008, 03:07 PM
Yesterday did every-thing. (warmup heating pad exercises, ice)
Pain was a little bit worse yesterdat. could be from trying the incline press
Today I'm going to try biceps and forearm's and see how it feels.
07-07-2008, 07:50 PM
Update: have been using the liquid everyday.
Today did Deadlifts no noticable pain.
Also did my exercises
Heating pad 10 mins
Squishy ball squeeze, still pain about a 3
wrist flex-This waS OK
iCEING 5 MINUTES
Im taking it slow and easy, not doing any exercises that would cause pain. My specialist told me (on july 1st) to start trying my exercises again. so i tried Dumbell flys-60 lbs and I felt ssome pain)
Tomorrow I think I'll try a shoulder press machine at the gym. There is a Physical therapist in training at my gym who helps me out.

keep up the progress......injuries suck!
07-09-2008, 12:13 AM
Today I tried an elbow press machine. I did 110 10x's with no pain. shoulders fleet a bit sharp on the warm ups so i did some rotator cuff exercises. I know it's small but its a giant leap for myself. I can start using this exercise hopefully.
07-11-2008, 12:31 AM
Today i did Gironda Dips and no pain.(I only did one set) My elbow has healed alot; although, im not going to push it, Im going to keep trying exercises and working my way up. I was reading Arnolds modern ENCYL and he says pain is an indicator of how well the injury has healed.
