Thread: Anyone else suffer with Arm-Bar Elbow?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone else suffer with Arm-Bar Elbow?

    Hello people. I've been suffering with a pain in my Elbow on and off for several months which my friend named "Arm-Bar Elbow" and the Dr diagnosed it as fluid around the joint (tendoritus or something like that) of my eblow and said "Lay off doing anything physical for several weeks" and gave me some Ibuprofen, Though its not going to well as i'm bored shitless. The thing im abit concerned about is that i stopped doing BJJ for several weeks previously due to losing my job and as soon i started doing BJJ again the pain reoccured. Anyone else suffer with this kind of injury and will it keep occuring? The Dr said 3/5 weeks of not doing BJJ.

    My elbow is fucked, after overextending in one of my fights and now comes back every few months to haunt me, not sure if its the same as what youve got but when i feel it, it does feel like there is fluid there.

    Yes thats similar feeling to what i have. It became that bad last week my arm was shaking and i was in that much pain i was in tears almost. For the last week i've been popping Pain Killers like theyre skittles.

    I normally have a good warm up and stretch which lasts 10 Minutes. The Dr didnt go into to much detail on what Tendonitis is or any helpful advice he just gave me Ibroprofen and sent me on my way.

    Looking for a miracle cure but seems there isnt one lol.

    I'm assuming this has come about from being caught in lots of arm bars of them being put on too hard. So for now rest it, and when you train again tap early. If your training partners smash arm bars on then don't train with them.

    sounds like tennis elbow / tendonitis (like detox mentioned) , the only way around it is to strap it up....and try not to use for a few weeks...

    Lots of things it could be... usual advice - go see a physio or osteopath with experience of sports injuries.

    If it does turn out to be tennis elbow, it can respond well to treatment if you catch it early enough.

    There's some really good taping stuff that I find often works well with elbows.

    I have this alot, I also use ibruprofen gel to get right into the joint, and also ice it alot after classes. Mine does re-occur, some classes are fine then the odd class it will prang it. Lucky for our gym we have a few physios that actually train there, one of them, JD, gave me some exercises to do and these seem to help. Of course, typing doesn't so not sure if its also mixed in with a bit of RSI.. I still keep an eye on it though and train carefully, not just in jits but other activities like chin ups etc..

    good luck and I hope you get back on the mats soon.

    Hi,

    For tennis elbow, go to a sports massage therapist, an osteopath (or me!)
    Despite what doctors tell you about resting it etc, it can often be massaged away.
    I recently treated a school teacher who was having quite bad trouble with his right elbow. His GP had told him to rest it and see what happened - a couple of months later it was a lot worse.
    Two days after I treated him he played cricket and said that it was now fine.
    It takes me about 40 mins to do this (it does hurt).

    On a related note; I was a tennis orphan! My mum is a county level tennis player (Kent veterans) but 25 years ago her GP told her she would have to give it up because of tennis elbow. After a week or so of not knowing what to do with herself, she saw a guy who stuck 2 needles into her forearm and passed electricity through them - sorted!

    In my experience, tennis elbow often/usually gets worse (obviously, I tend to see people where it has worsened), but it is relatively easy to treat.
