Tennis elbow is a common injury that can be very debilitating and a difficult-to-cure injury. Without proper therapeutic techniques, it can last for a very long period of time - with little to no improvement. A key to improving tennis elbow is to stretch the tendons connected to the lateral epicondyle - the place where you feel the pain. That's not really that easy to do. Bending your wrist down 90 degrees and pushing on it with your other hand, IMHO, is not that effective in stretching that area and for me, at least, is noticeably painful to the wrist. Like myself, upon inspection, you have may serious doubts about this product. The Flex Bar, when used with the Tyler Twist, is very effective at stretching the tendons in the affected area. You can confirm this by touching the lateral epicondyle area after using the Flex Bar. The area will be warm to the touch! I only started using this product AFTER I received a cortisone shot in my elbow. Within 24 hours, that shot solved about 90% of my tennis elbow problem. I then began a routine with the Flex Bar. I found my progress on that last 10% to be very quick and relatively effortless using this product. I STRONGLY recommend this product to anyone suffering from tennis elbow. It's easy to use and effective.I have golfer's elbow in my other elbow - pain on the inside of the elbow - and no, I don't play tennis or golf! I tried using this product with the Reverse Tyler Twist for golfer's elbow but found that exercise to be very awkward and much less effective in stretching the medial epicondyle area (the inside elbow area where you get golfer's elbow).I'm 6'2 and 220lbs. Why anyone would need the stiffer green and blue Flex Bars I have no idea. The Tyler Twist is, in effect, a stretching exercise.
