Anyone who actually tries will prolly ruin their elbow before they graduate high school.
But hey, they're putting his kids through college so whatever.
I'm getting there. It was starting to feel normal the past few days so I decided to take my Stalkers out to the field to see what's up. I don't wind up hard with my Stalkers on a FH but I tried a couple throws.

Each time I got a terrible shooting pain from my elbow to my wrist. Yeah, it's serious. It's so odd that I don't feel anything at all when I throw BH. It's only the FH motion. Shutting the FH down for real until the end of October. Might only play with 4 discs for the next month. A JB Roach, Big Z Roach, AviarX3 & Stalker. BH exclusive rounds. Any tee shot where I would 100% throw FH I'll just skip.

I would seek a holistic treatment, seek the advice of a bunch of guys who chuck plastic and look into a nutrition regiment to help solve the problem. Lastly, consult Ricky Wysocki.

Go see a damn doctor.

tendonitis requires rest, ice, stretching, and i highly recommend a theraband flexbar (there are videos on youtube that describe how to use a flexbar for tendonitis, and it works very well).

A bad case of tendonitis can take a long time to go away. I once had it for a whole year. Since I started using a flexbar to warmup for discgolf and some other stretches, I haven't had it at all in nearly 10 years.

I've been playing since around 2004 & have never had this issue. I throw A LOT of forehands when I play so I've had to stop all together.

Did my google homework when I first felt it & I believe it's 'tendonitis' which means I just stressed it out. I did lift weights pretty hard two days before this tournament so I may have pushed it too hard without enough rest before the tournament.

Anyone else have this issue & how long did it last? Did it come back again?
Depends how long you wait to rest it. If you step off it right away - not too long. I started having issues a few winters ago, same thing - my forehand was getting unbearable. I stopped right away, for about a month, and I was just fine. At the time I was particularly conscious about resting because of the fact that I'd just come off of 9 months of back issues that were in part because I'd ignored earlier warning signs.

Don't use ice unless you intend to stress it - reducing swelling helps provide further damage when working the impacted area. If you're not going to be stressing the injury: ice slows down natural healing processes and reduces long term pliability of the tendons. You want to focus on active rest. Do as much as you can without straining or stressing it. Keep it moving, but don't aggravate it.

I suffered some elbow pains last fall, luckily the winter came and forced a disc golf break upon me.
I recall it took maybe 3 months for the pains to disappear

Typo above: reducing swelling helps **prevent** further damage when working the impacted area.

To imply - ice it if you’re gonna work it, otherwise let it do its thing. (If that wasn’t clear)

Sounds like a good time to start throwing with your other arm.

lol I've tried that a few times before just to see if I could.....not happening. I'm not going to throw any forehands or lift weights for the rest of October. If my forearm is still wrecked after that I'm going to see a specialist.

Really amazing I haven't had this issue in 15 years of throwing forehands. 36 years old and falling apart.

I'm strictly forehand and I was developing elbow tendonitis too. About 6 months ago I changed my grip and it went away. I went from being sore after 9 holes to playing 2 rounds without problem.

I played my home course this weekend and played a round with a guy who knew his stuff. He saw my grip and asked why I used it. After explaining the tendonitis, he asked what about the grip caused it. For me, its the reachback - he suggested that I should never have to reachback that far to get my distance. Forehand is about body and snap. So now I hope to try his suggestions and go back to the old grip (standard everyone on here uses) but try to work on body movement and snap.
