Remember my arm problems? Much better now! Here is the story

Remember my arm problems? Much better now! Here is the story:

Since April 2016 I had massive arm problems. Lots of pain, partly couldn't go kite. And if, I had lots of pain afterwards. Tried injections, stretching, no kiting for 3 months etc. No luck.

Then my agency Solutions Talents & Professionals organized a physio for me, Christian Minke, German, who lives and works in Norway. See his page here: Physiosapiens As.

Interesting approach...by checking me out and finding a disfunction which causes the arm pain. Because of this my muscles on the arm react delayed, and therefore puts more force on everything, which normally the muscles would hold.
So he corrected me.

In addition I got an Cortison injection by my brother (Orthopedic) to get rid of the pain (that alone didn't help before).

Plus I am using a bracelet (www.masalo.eu) to support my arm for now, since Christian said to not put too much force on it yet. But I want to kite ;-) And as you know me, I kite with a lot of power! So far, no pain and I only feel a tiny bit, but not as tentioned before.

Here a picture of Christian helping me and Mieke Tasch Mieke Tasch - a personal trainer.
Plus a picture of my bracelet.

I hope it helps other people out there!

Glad to hear you are getting better. I feel your pain, I have not been able to kite for 4 months because of shoulder, hopefully next month...

Did you have lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)?

Interesting arm brace (at forearm and elbow). Where exactly was your pain, Toby? I have used a wrist brace to help alleviate elbow pain, but yours does not immobilize the wrist (more at the elbow?). Glad you found something that's working.

I had tennis and golf elbow!

It sits way above the wrist, center of underarm.

No problem at all to move it, as my latest clip show:
