Tennis Elbow Treatment – Left Arm Lateral Epicondylitis

In the original post I did for tennis elbow treatment, I demonstrated the Tyler Twist on the right arm only.

Since then I’ve had some people request a video demonstrating on the left arm. And I’ll admit, it’s a confusing exercise to learn at first.

So if you have tennis elbow on the left arm, this is for you.

Want a free PDF with photos and directions to help you remember how to do this exercise properly? Get it here.

Check out my ultimate resource for tennis and golfer’s elbow, The Elbow Tendonitis Toolkit.

I also made a video for whoever wants to see the golfers elbow treatment on the left arm.

And if you’re not certain which injury you have, check out the tennis elbow test or golfers elbow test.

  • Came upon this by accident. Great to see you Jaime! Best regards from Tom.

  • I have been damn near decimated by tennis elbow on my left arm. I recently bought the red bar (last week) after seeing your video, and dear God, it is so painful, I spread out my three sets of fifteen over the course of the day. I’m not eager to pay for another bar (the yellow bar), but I may have too. I AM feeling the love for your video though, but man, I’m doing everything right, including deep massage and I’m flat-out worn out from this treatment. My goal is to make our five-day canoeing Missouri River trip the end of July, but I am heading into my sixth week of this pain, and not seeing the light at the end of this tunnel.

  • Sorry to hear you’re in so much pain. I suggest you order the yellow bar sooner rather than later if you have a trip coming up next month. Acupuncture may help speed the healing process too. Do you have an idea about what caused the injury in the first place?

    Thanks for the love.

  • Dealing with bilateral Medial and Later epicondylitis for more than 2 years now. It has me beyond depressed. I have been using the flexbars and I am hoping that I see some relief soon. Thank you for the information.

  • Hi Pedro, I hope you start feeling better soon. Just remember, it’s normal to feel irritated and sore when you start using the Flexbar but you should notice an improvement within a few days.
