The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Tendonitis?

    My job requires that I support moderate amounts of weight on/with my hand while maintaining at near 90 deg elbow flex. The duration and repetitiveness is of more concern than the weights involved, I think.

    Mild pain began to set in a few weeks ago. The pain is non-localized and seems to emanate from the anterior portion of my elbow and radiates down my forearm. THe pain is MUCH worse in my right arm, and thus, I've been reducing its use at work.

    I just got back from squatting and the pain in my right elbow and forearm is excruciating. It's dull and non-local, and nothing I do seems to alleviate it. There is mild "warmth" in my left arm too but its not nearly as severe. I"m going to take a few IBUprofen and see if that helps.

    Are these classic symptoms of tendonitis? Will anti-inflammatory medications help is so? And is there some sort of a brace or wrap I might use to alleviate the problem?

    Yes, yes, probably, but it's a short term fix.

    First thing I'd recommend is seeing a doctor. Tendonitis sucks. And the longer you let it go untreated the worse it gets. Ice, rest, and Motrin all help, but eventually you may have to consider another line of work so as not to keep reinjuring yourself.

    Good luck.

    well, the pain first started on the job

    since I began taking action to prevent further injury, I have not experienced pain on the job

    i took a week off from the gym, and I have no pain at work, but the pain during and after lifting is still there but seems to be getting better as related to upper body work....

    however, teh squats are killing me

    I have tendonitis in my knees. Not fun.

    Now that its basketball season, squats are slowly being phased out of my routine. My knees just can't take it.
