TENNIS ELBOW VS. GOLFERS ELBOW: What is the difference and what to do about it – Anna Mattson

If you watched the video above, you now know the difference.  To relate it to CrossFit, Tennis Elbow can come from a lot of twisting of the wrists, loaded or unloaded, during movements such as muscle-ups, ring dips, and push-ups.  Golfers Elbow comes from the constant flexing of the wrist or gripping of objects including Olympic Lifts/pull-ups/deadlifts/Bicep curls……because we do so many of those.

What do you do if you have Tennis Elbow?  Here are some great exercises to help heal and strengthen those extensors.

What do you do if you have Golfers Elbow? I would like to show 2 videos for this ailment as both contain great exercises.

*When he says “golf” insert CrossFit*

 I am hoping you find some usefulness from these videos.  If your pain is persisting, please seek the guidance of a physical therapist.  Other recommendations are rest and icing sessions.
