I have been dealing with this problem as well (work related thank God). I have been introduced to these "fixes": prolotherapy,PRP therapy,Cortisone injections. All 3 have been proven no better than a placebo by research. My currrent Ortho Spec said that the best healing is natural but it takes FOREVER..lol...I have been out for almost 7 months now and am experiencing the same things you mentioned. Ice,ibuprofen,a strong non stretchy arm band and lots of stretching and strengthening. I use a 2lb weight. I rest my arm,hold the weight,raise the weighted hand with my opposite hand and then resist the lowering of the weight until it burns..then ice again. It does take time and may not heal 100%. But I wouldn't recommend anything invasive. I hope this helps atleast ease your mind about it.View Thread
