Great For Managing Tennis Elbow Complaints
Our physio team regularly use these devices in the management of tennis elbow and golfers elbow conditions. Specifically using and exercise bar over a standard flex bar in more acute and painful conditions or with smaller, less strong individuals. A flexbar is a fantastic eccentric loading tool, for helping overcome stubborn tendinopathies of the elbow. Great for building forearm and grip strength. We find that with most of our patients find the green exercise bar a great starting point. However unlike with standard flexbars the blue exercise bar is still a manageable level of resistance.
Eccentric loading is a long proven approach in tendinopathy management. When coupled with an off loading device like a tennis elbow strap. The use of a flex bar a few times a week can go a long way to helping manage stubborn golfers elbow and tennis elbow complaints. Exact sets, reps and frequency of flex bar use depends on individual circumstances and are best guided by your treating physiotherapist. The right exercise can be “wrong” if not carried out hard enough, or often enough. Or conversely, too frequently or intensely. Exercise and rehab is all about the balance.
