Tennis Elbow Treatment – Does Rest Cure Tennis Elbow?

Tennis Elbow Cure – What effect does rest have?


The attachment of the Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis muscle to the lateral epicondyle may be inflamed although there is some debate about that. (See What is Tennis Elbow)
In this instance rest can help to stop aggravating the problem and the inflammation will settle down.
In fact rest is an essential element in settling acute tendonitis.

(Or have you had repeated bouts of Tennis Elbow?)

If this is the case then there are degenerative changes in your tendon attaching to the Lateral Epicondyle.
Resting your arm will settle the pain in your elbow.
HOWEVER – if you do anything that uses your arm strongly then the problem will return and you won’t cure tennis elbow!

This is because rest allows the pain to settle but the repair that takes place is not structurally as good as it could be and it easily breaks down again.

You need to stimulate repair of the degenerated tendon by doing specific exercises in a controlled fashion over the course of several weeks.

This produces an effective repair of the damaged tendon and means that you are much less likely to suffer a recurrence of the problem. See “How do I stop Tennis Elbow coming back?”

You also need to make sure that the muscles in your forearm do not shorten – see Best Stretch for Tennis Elbow

My Advice

For a Tennis Elbow cure – If your problem is new then rest, ice and gently stretch.
If not new then stretch, exercise and relative rest (don’t do things that make it worse).
