Tennis Elbow Protocol

Exercises:

1) Wrist extension
2) Wrist flexion
3) Pronation
4) Supination
5) Finger extension
6) Ball squeeze

I greatly prefer elastic resistance to weights. Start with low resistance. Perform 10-15 repetitions of each exercise. Only 1-2 exercise sessions per day; more is not necessarily better, and can exacerbate symptoms. Each repetition is held for 2 seconds. The elbow should be bent 90° and the forearm supported on your thigh or a table.

Counterforce brace should be worn. Do not work through pain. Soreness for 1-2 hours after exercising is OK, but sharp pain, or soreness the day after means that less resistance should be used, or the number of repetitions decreased.
