I think I have Golfer's elbow (a version of tennis elbow but in the side of my left arm nearer my body). It may come from a combination of guitar practice and lifting ladders. However, that's not the real problem just now. I've tried topical ibuprofen and Voltarol and they seem to work to a limited extent. I've also found some exercises on line where I push against my upturned hand for 10 seconds at a time, repeat 5 times and do it 4 times a day. Not comfortable but it does seem to be doing something - until I lift something awkwardly (like a guitar case!). I cannot practice guitar for more than about 20 minutes at a time as it gets very uncomfortable.
I can't take oral anti inflamatories as I'm on anti coagulents (Apixaban) so is there any advice out there to speed my recovery?
