This is a brilliant question I just got asked by a private client and realized that THIS is the question that EVERYONE wants to know!
So many people ask "What should I do for my tennis elbow?" "What is the best exercise to do for tennis elbow?"
What they REALLY want to know is "What is the FASTEST way to heal my tennis elbow?"
This is it! The crux of the issue.
So, what IS the fastest way to heal tennis elbow?
The research shows us that tendons take 12 months to heal. WOWSER!! That's a long time Emma!
Tendons are stubborn buggers, that's for sure!!
Now, let me share a caveat on that figure too - tendons take 12 months to heal AS LONG AS YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THINGS to heal them!
I'm sure you've heard of people who have had tennis elbow for WAAAAY longer than 12 months!! Why so?
The simple answer is, they are NOT doing the right things to heal the tendon, so the tendon doesn't heal.
This brings me back to the original question, the fastest way to heal your tennis elbow is to work with me one to one so that I can guide you through the healing process and make sure you ARE doing the right things at the right time depending on what your symptoms are telling us. Now, I know that's not an option for everyone, so I'm in the process of creating a new self study course which will guide you through the 8 treatment sessions I've used for healing my one to one clients.
Some of these clients have become pain free in one session! Not all of them, but it IS possible! Most are pain free within the first month of doing the right things. Here's a couple of examples:
Eric had had tennis elbow for 3 years and, unfortunately, had undergone 4 injections and the doctor wanted to give him more! Thankfully, Eric said NO and ended up at physical therapy, with me. He became pain free in just 1 session!
Gabby had suffered with tennis elbow for 5 years, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome on both sides. Her job had her sitting on her computer for up to 10 hours per day and she was struggling! After 2 weeks of working with me, Gabby was pain free for the first time in 5 years!!
If you can't work with me one to one (you don't live in California or you are unable to work with me for financial reasons) this could be a great option for you!
But, Emma, don't you already have a program?
Yes, I do. I created the Comprehensive Tennis Elbow Relief Program that has healed elbows all around the world. This program contain every single technique, exercise and stretch that I have ever used to heal my clients. This program also includes access to a private Facebook group for Program participants where I go live every week to answer their questions. They can email me or message me whenever they need guidance.
The new course picks out the specific techniques and bunches them into the sessions that I have used with my one to one clients.
So, Emma, which should I choose?
Great question! If you have had tennis elbow for less that 3 months, and it's only affecting one arm, you don't have nerve symptoms (tingling, pin and needles or numbness) or other soreness (neck, shoulder, wrist or hand), then the self study course will be PERFECT for you!
If you've been suffering for longer than 3 months, you have it in both arms, have nerve symptoms or other soreness, you likely need the Comprehensive Program.
Emma, that all sounds great, but I don't think it will work for me. Nothing has helped.
I hear you! And this is exactly why I wrote my book, Tennis Elbow Relief! This book gives you the flavor of my Method. If you think you've tried everything for your tennis elbow, I challenge you to read my book. I bet there are strategies in there that no-one has suggested you try for our tennis elbow. That's what makes my Method so different and it's what makes my Method so successful.
No-one should be suffering with tennis elbow, it is completely resolvable. Make today the day that you decide that enough is enough. Learn more about my Comprehensive Program and my book on my website www.TennisElbowQueen.com
