Do Lotions, Creams And Sprays Help Your Tennis Elbow Heal?
Lotions, sprays and medicated gels are often used to relieve the pain of Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow…
But can these topical remedies actually help your injured tendons heal – or are they more likely to just rub you the wrong way?
This is Allen Willette with another episode of the Tennis Elbow Classroom podcast…
And I certainly get it that when your Golfer’s or Tennis Elbow is screaming bloody murder…
And you can barely lift your coffee mug without stabbing pain in your elbow, (much less your tennis racket, golf clubs or leaf blower)…
You may desperately need some relief, so you buy some cream, spray or gel and rub it in… Presto! Instant relief!
Great idea, right? Well, maybe, maybe not!
At best, you may get some temporary relief from your symptoms with little or no downside…
But, here’s the thing… although you could reasonably expect a cream or salve to help protect your skin as it heals from a cut or abrasion…
You can’t realistically expect something you put on your skin to help your Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow injury heal faster… Okay, so, why not?
