How To Fix Golfer's Elbow / Climber's Elbow

Eric says: He has developed soreness inside his elbow – Golfer's Elbow but more like Kettlebell Elbow. He thinks it if from doing the ketllebell clean. Any tips on how to get better? And also how to avoid this?

How To Keep From Retaining Water With Creatine

Brandon says: He has been supplementing with Creatine Monohydrate for the cognitive enhancements (like we have been talking about) but he has noticed that he has put on some water weight. Do you know how to avoid that happening when supplementing with Creatine?

In my response, I recommend:

Can Fascia Store Toxins?

Mark asks: Most therapists I talk to believe that toxins are often trapped in myofascial adhesions. This comes up in post-treatment discussions (“drink a lot of water today”), but I never hear it discussed as a preventive measure. Does detoxification and avoidance of toxic substances help prevent the build up of adhesions? Is it an effective adjunct to the various myofascial release therapies?

Urinary Testing For Hormones

Natalie says: She is wondering about the DUTCH test (Dry Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones). She understands that it is the gold standard for cortisol testing. Have you heard of it? It's by Precision Analytical. Do you feel that it is indeed worth getting?

In my response, I recommend:

    Hi Ben. Would you recommend the same advice for forearm splints? Practicing L-Sits caused me to have severe forearm splints for the last 4 weeks with no signs of recovery. I’m hoping your golfer’s elbow tips will help me as well.

    1. Make sure you start with rest, but also do the same type of stuff you do with shin splints – freeze some dixie cups in the freezer and roll some ice up and down the arms 5-10 minutes few times a day. You can also use a compression bandage to reduce the swelling or even use some kinesio tape. Make sure you get some good natural anti inflammatory like a high dose curcumin extract or phenocane is another good one as my recommended alternative to ibuprofen to help with pain and inflammation.
