    Jeremy,

    Great exercise/tip on the golfer’s elbow. I suffered with that a year ago, and it bugged me to even lift something.

    Any exercise/tip’s with rotator cuff issues?

    Thanks…

      Thanks Joel. These exercises are great for prevention as well. Great idea about an exercise tip for the rotator cuff. Look for that coming up soon.

      Also, I made an error around minute mark 1:30 as I mentioned a ligament. Though ligaments can get injured around the elbow, it was a tendon that I meant to refer to. Sorry for any confusion.

    How many times a day should one do these to heal up an elbow?

      Hi Kathy,
      Thanks for the question. As long as the stretches are in the mild/moderate category (think 3-5 on a 10 point scale…10 being most aggressive) you could do them throughout the day multiple times. It won’t be the amount of stretches that could backfire, it would be the aggressiveness. The exercises with weight could be done once daily unless you feel “work-out sore” the next day… in that case you would want to skip a day between the weight exercises. Depending on the severity of the injury and your activity level, the ice could be done 2-3x/day for the properly instructed amount of time. Remember, rest is your best friend with this injury. As frustrating as it is, putting the clubs away for 4-6 weeks is sometimes the best thing to do. As a matter of fact, I’m working with a Neurologist that is doing that very thing right now. I hope this helps and you recover quickly. If it lingers, or if you have a “gut” feeling you might need more help please go see a medical professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment. All the best,
