Simply choosing to ignore the pain associated with, not only tennis elbow but any injury, is just plain stupidity.  Reason being is that many injuries can be healed quicker instead of getting worse when you seek out the right treatment as soon as an injury is discovered.

There is not arguing that tennis elbow can affect any person, regardless of age, gender or occupation. It’s not uncommon for your tennis elbow injury to start out as a slight, dull pain but it can progressively get worse if no treatment measures are taken or you are the opinion that your pain will magically disappear on it’s own.

You will often notice that your elbow pain increases even by just picking up light objects like a tea cup or coffee mug. Ignoring your tennis elbow symptoms and turning a blind eye to treatment will only extend the amount of time it takes for you to recover.

For far too many sufferers, tennis elbow is an injury that can become expensive to treat , especially when you get sucked into endless physical therapy sessions, daily anti-inflammatory pills, bulky elbow braces, medical devices and gimmicks.

You may very well discover that along with your outside elbow pain, you sometimes have elbow stiffness. Moreover, if you are between the ages of  thirty and sixty, whether you play tennis or not, you are considered to be in the higher risk category for developing this repetitive strain injury. In fact, 95% of individuals afflicted with tennis elbow each year do not even engage in any type of sport or activity that involve excessive arm movements or elbow rotation.

As you continue to avoid treatment, you will discover that your forearm muscles will become tighter and your normal range of motion will be decreased.  There will be a significant decrease in your grip strength and may very well find that you are dropping things more often than before.

The reason your tennis elbow worsens is because the small tear that you have in your extensor tendon becomes a larger tear as you continue with the activities or arm movements that caused your injury in the first place.  The larger the tear becomes the greater your elbow pain and the more dependant you become on others.

When your condition gets worse, even the simplest actions can become extremely daunting and challenging.  Everyday actions that we take for granted such as buttoning your shirt and gripping/grasping things that are not heavy like a broomstick, shovel or garden rake.

It’s important to remember to listen to your body.  Pain is your body’s signal that something is not right and that you should seek treatment as soon as possible instead of letting an injury such as tennis elbow get worse.

If any of the above symptoms sound familiar to you, then you are best advised to seek an effective and proven tennis elbow treatment program quickly, to prevent your tennis elbow from getting worse!

So what’s the secret weapon to eliminate tennis elbow pain?  It’s not what you think and it only involves 5 simple steps that you can do at home without the need for any special exercise equipment or medical gadgets!
