How many repetitions of elbow exercise should I do to strengthen my tennis elbow without injuring it?

Low weight, high rep: After an initial period of rest, most patients do best with a rehab protocol based on low weights and high repetitions. In my practice that means two sets of at least 15 reps in each set. If you play a sport, you can gradually resume the sport as symptoms resolve. A tennis elbow strap may be useful to minimize symptoms. For new onset of pain, a course of nsaids may be prescribed also. ...Read more

Very common: The most common forms of elbow pain from overuse, or repetitive motions are muscle, or tendon sprains. Very common with doing single joint exercises with weights. You must lay off this exercise for a while and opt for full body exercises like pushups, pull-ups and bodyweight rows until your elbows are feeling a little better.

My elbow was moderately hyperextended in a basketball game four days ago. Now my elbow makes a mild clicking/popping when bending. What should I do?

My elbow was moderately hyperextended in a basketball game four days ago.  Now my elbow makes a mild clicking/popping when bending.  What should I do?

Elbow Antics: You most likely injured the cartilage surface of this complex hinge joint and the associated inflammation is causing the clicking or popping that you appreciate. If the joint "locks" when attempting to move it you may have torn a small portion of the cartilage and it is catching in the joint space. Apply ice and try to adequately rest the elbow. Try an antiinflammatory if needed for pain. ...Read more
