Best way to deal with injuries

Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to deal with typical tennis injuries? I have had tennis elbow, and I suffer from various joint injuries fairly frequently. Particularly in the wrist and shoulder.

I'd like to hear how other people deal with these types of tennis issues.

I know that weight lifting and stretching are good to do to preemptively thwart these annoying injuries that I typically just try to play through.

Drink a bottle of scotch every morning on an empty stomach. Works like a charm.

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Re: Best way to deal with injuries

this is radical but here it goes:

go and see a doctor.

a good rheumatologist will be able to sort out most joint injuries.

Re: Best way to deal with injuries

Try lowering your string tension and definitely hit the gym and get stronger.

Stay off the court for a little while if the elbow is so bad.

Re: Best way to deal with injuries

Do some research to see if your racket, string and string tension are suited for your playing style and level.

The injuries you describe often occur from using the wrong equipment.

good lord, a rheumatologist is useless for sports injuries (rheumies deal with autoimmune diseases and some happen to have joint associated issues). see an orthopedist or sports medicine doctor.

oh, stop playing if you have joint pain.

Re: Best way to deal with injuries

Grab your elbow after every missed shot, so that everybody knows that it's the injury's fault and not yours. Also, if you can't make it to an opponents drop shot, pull up short and grab you hamstring wincing

Just a couple things I learned from watching Murray

Canada Pospisil - Dancevic - Peliwo

Crazies Dolgopolov - Fognini - Janowicz - Gulbis

Young Guns Thiem - Vesely - Coppejans

I was going to say 'see a doctor/get referrals' but someone already said it.

Re: Best way to deal with injuries

if you get a day or two off just do nothing and rest a lot

there really is nothing huge that can be done for minor tweaks of these body parts, ice at the time, massages, stretching, etc

it's just part of the game
