hockey elbow??

I started playing hockey last spring, and within a few months noticed that my elbow on my dominant (right) arm (i'm right handed, shoot left) was very sore after i played.

it's not like i'm falling on it or anything, and feels more like a "tennis elbow" type thing, like tendons or ligaments are sore.

anyone else ever experience this sort of thing, and if so, is there anything i can do to prevent it (other than not playing!!)??

Maybe you are getting up from the ice wrong?

My guess would be because I live in a different state.

there is a forearm band that provides support. Wraps on the forearm and has a stiff support bar that wraps over that. HCeck it out at your local drug store. They are about 15 bucks US. I use one at work to prevent that type of problem. Unfortunately, once you have tendonitis, rest is the precribed cure...generally takes 3-6 weeks for recovery depending on the severity of the inflammation.

this is the one I use:

I think I get the same problem your describing when I wear my elbow pad too tight and I do lots of passing/shooting for long periods. Usually loosening up my pad stops it.

If you are using something really stiff, the elbow might be a result of that.

I was having the same elbow problem and I realized that I was aggravating it with the way I was lifting my hockey bag !

I now take care to lift my bag properly & not strain my elbow.

Don;t just use your forearms & elbow to lift your bag onto your shoulder.

If your bag has wheels, dont drag it up the staris pulling on the handle - lift the bag onto your shoulder.

Since I started taking care how I lifted my bag, my elbow pains have gone done considerably.
