Update on my golfers elbow - Page 2

@vangator.  What's in the cream?  Most likely it's a topical NSAID, like ibuprofen or similar.  Same cautions apply coz the drug seeps into the bloodstream, the kidneys and blood vessels.

The pain killer is arnica. The cream is a transdermal. Also has an anti inflammatory. Has a whole bunch of stuff. Camphor, peppermint oil. The best price I found on the net is at fern nutrition. Get the CT Cream Plus. $11.95. Give it a try. You won't be sorry. My pain was terrible and it went away in a few weeks. It takes a while because there is tremendous inflammation. Once it's gone, you'll only need a little as maintenance. It will eventually come back because you'll still be doing the same repetitive motion that caused it (ie golfing).


Also Eucalyptus Oil is a great pain killer and may dull the pain so you can golf. You'd have to spray it on your elbow every half hour or so during the round. Since my pain is basically gone, I'm not sure about the elbows, but it is great on sore or stiff necks. I get them all the time. One spray and the pain is instantly gone. I've tried everything and this is the only thing that works.

Eucalyptus Oil is good for headaches too. My wife and daughter get bad headaches (possibly migraines). they've found Kwan Loong Oil works better. Both have a slight burn on the skin, but it's infinitely better than the previous pain.

Can you tell I'm into homeopathic cures? I try to stay away from pills. I'm almost 60 and take no medication.

Hey try this guys if the pain is in your right elbow let your left hand become more dominant... This will help get rid of the pain for good... Vise versa if it's in the left arm...

Like all golfers elbow and tennis elbow, strengthening exercises are 100% needed. You cannot just rest and ice and expect the cause of the pain to go away.

Finally got it done on Tuesday !!!!!!!.(Surgery)  No golf for 3-4 months needless to say.




Time will tell, but 10 months of constant pain was too much to bear. I did play all summer, but not well. PT starts in a couple of weeks.

I'll keep you posted.

yellowboy,  like your avatar.  I had a yellow lab,  until he got old with cancer,  and had to put him down.  Name was Max.  Best dog I've ever had!

Thanks, His name was Gus and alas he passed of the same disease almost 3 years ago as well. He was great dog,  companion and hunter. I have a new guy now, just as great, and since I got my surgery we are driving each other crazy !
