I have been diagnosed with tennis elbow. The nagging pain, some days worse then others, will just not go away. I just do not have time to slow down and let things heal. It is Spring and I have raking, pruning and all those chores that only aggravate the issue. Just regular cleaning plus my desk work aggravates. I have looked at my work space and know that ergonomically I need to make adjustments. The Facts About Tennis Elbow Not only is the elbow and wrist affected but the upper arm and shoulder. Imagine being a farmer in the 1930's with tennis elbow or if SHTF, I just do not know how people would be able to take time to let things heal. I think you would have to learn to use your other arm. Anyone had tennis elbow? I have never prepped braces but I have now changed that thought. I am thinking wrist, knee and elbow braces need to be added to my medical stash. I have slings but you need to keep using the injured a bit so that it doesn't stiffen up.
