5.0 out of 5 stars It worked Sept. 10 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It provided the exercises that cured my tennis elbow. Too much time at the computer with the mouse was my issue, and now I know how to keep the tennis elbow away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for "printer's elbow" too Dec 4 2010
Format:Paperback
I spent a long time working my way out of the printing industry only to find myself right back in it last May - after 4 years at a real job - thanks to the economy and layoffs. So now my arm hurts like hades, especially after busy periods when we have a lot of overtime. It only seemed to get better over the 4th of July weekend holiday, so it was obvious it was my job. So what to do? I was willing to try about anything. I sure didn't want to go to the doctor, have them charge me a copayment, then tell me to take freakin' ADVIL - AGAIN!! Come on, guys. Been there done that - with headaches, back pain, swollen lymph node, etc. I can take Advil without a doctor visit. So, I'll cut to the chase - the book totally makes sense, totally explains everything in language I can understand, and it worked. I'll admit the "brace" idea scared me at first until I saw the picture on page 31. Page 31 pretty much nailed it though as to the exact cause. It showed exactly where this muscle is and what it does, and that's exactly the spot where I keep grabbing my arm and shaking out my hand.

Now the brace I haven't bought yet, but my sister had some of those weights in storage so I went to get them. Here's the pleasant surprise - the exercises with the dumbbells on page 47 actually feel really good. It's like a stretching feeling that isn't unpleasant at all - maybe a mild sting is all. In fact, I did them every day at first which probably explains the stinging. But it feels good. And, there's a whole chart in the back that helps you keep track of when to do what. Now I'm following that, and it's going better (well the last couple of days I've been writing it down). I'll see if Walgreens or someone has that brace. But I'm practically pain free already.

Also I volunteered to clear pallets for a week and work that muscle less - I'm sure that has something to do with it too. Giving the muscle a chance to heal, like the book says. In any case I got the whole thing read in one evening, got the answers I wanted. My day is full enough - I just wanted this pain to go away. Not another textbook. This was exactly what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great for my husband's tennis elbow. May 26 2010
By Nicole B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book isn't cheap but the important thing is it works. My husband did the exercises and says his tennis elbow went away. A couple of time (due to his work environment)the pain started to return. He did the exercises in the book again and again the pain went away. He is happy with this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad July 17 2011
By Kb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While my tennis elbow hasn't been cured, (maybe because i'm a boxer/mma fighter who throws hundreds if not thousands of punches a day) following the program in this book has helped immensely. I have read his rotator cuff and plantar faciatis books and both took care of my problems there. While they are verbose, when you get to the programs, they really do work.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works Oct. 4 2012
By R. N. Beasley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I give this book 5 stars because IT WORKS! It is a bit wordy and references a lot of medical studies about which I could care less, but it fully cured my elbow tendonitis. I'm a middle aged avid golfer and have been in a constant battle with lateral and medial epicondylitis for the past 15 years. I bought this book in March and immediately began following its simple stretching/strengthening/bracing approach to curing elbow tendonitis. I've played golf weekly since April and had no elbow pain or discomfort whatsoever. This was the first summer in many, many years that I've been able to play as much golf as I wanted without being plagued with elbow pain. I've also taken 6 strokes off my handicap because I've been able to practice more than in past years. The book is a bit overpriced for what you get, but it was worth every penny as far as I'm concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Starting and it is EXCELENT June 23 2010
By Diana Gomez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hello. I'm practicing the exercises now for 7 days and I feel already better. All the information is very interesting except may be for all the studies... It could be shorter at this point. Other than that is very practical and the exercises are very simple.

The best is the tracking system. It really let you follow your progress with numbers... In my case very important.

Thank you.
