Golfer's elbow, ugh.
« on: October 01, 2015, 08:21:23 AM »
I've pretty much always had pain in my inner elbows every time Ive been out for a nibble, they ache for a few days which is alright as I never bmx that often and they recover in time but there's a fucking huge indoor that's opened up this year half hour from me so I want to be putting the work in over winter.

I'm pretty fit and don't have any other muscle or joint issues.

Dr google, tells me it's 'golfer's elbow.' Anyone else had this or know how to deal with it?

A. Don't nobody got no time for dat.
B. it's worth asking here as it might be common as erybody bunnyhops
C. Usually doctors just say to rest

I think I have it. At one point it was so bad that I couldn't ride or lift objects. It got better after a few months. There's still some pain occasionally but mild enough I can ignore it and ride. I haven't seen a doctor because 'mericuh but I've read cortisone injections can help.

Seeing a Doctor is a waste of time for anything like that, stock response of "Oh well just rest it for a few weeks and see how it is". You rest it, go back and they have no idea what is actually up with you.

Exactly, any doctor will tell you that BG and two just have!

So you're saying you just got on with it and over time it decreases in general?

Had something similar in Rugby, went to the physio. She said that the best thing for me to do was rest, when I told her that I wasn't going to she strapped it up, and it felt fine riding/playing sport with tight strapping and an elbow brace.

id second some kind of elbow brace. ive been fortunate enough not to have ever fucked my elbow up super bad, but my wrists knees and ankles have all been feeling pretty trashed at various points. some people dont seem to like braces but its always helped me heaps when getting back into riding after hurting any joints
this year i am going to have sex and it will be awesome

It's called bunny hop arms it's the fine muscle knees you don't normally use, tearing. Sometimes pain lasts for a week and the only solution is more bmx.

How much other exercise do you do, particularly strength work? I find that running/other cycling  helps absolutely fuck all with riding the bmx, but stuff like press-ups, chin-ups etc. is really good to strengthen you up. I'd highly recommend 'you are your own gym' by Mark Lauren as a cheap book to buy and try some stuff out (just ignore the opening chapters of motivational guff).

Try using Tiger Balm. It's like one of those cure alls to any type of muscle strain, bruising, stuff like that. You can probably find it at any Asian grocery store.
