Tennis Elbow Supplements: Helpful For Your Healing Or Total Waste Of Money?

Supplements for Tennis and Golfer's Elbow

Are there any supplements, including vitamins or herbal remedies for Tennis Elbow or Golfer's Elbow that will help relieve your pain and support your healing process or are they a complete waste of time and money?

It's a question I'm often asked by my members in the forum – and in my practice treating Tennis Elbow sufferers directly.

Many people want to avoid toxic anti-inflammatory pills – for very good reasons, and they're looking for natural alternatives for both pain relief AND to support their healing process.

The problem is that desperate Tennis and Golfer's Elbow sufferers tend to get a little carried away seeking remedy…

And there's no shortage of claims on the Internet (some bordering on the miraculous) about all kinds of vitamins, supplements or herbal concoctions – including:

  • Basic Vitamins: A, B, C and D
  • “Anti-Inflammatory” Herbs: Ginger, Turmeric, Bromelain
  • MSM, Chondrotin and Glucosamine
  • Fish Oil / Veg-based Omega-3 Oils
  • And Collagen Supplements

Sadly, the short answer is that most of these things, beyond basic vitamins, are pointless and a waste of money, for various reasons we explore in this episode...

(At least when it comes to healing tendon injuries like Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow. Not necessarily for other problems.)

REFERENCE – Quoted in the video:

“Vitamin D plays a significant role in the tendon-to-bone healing process by increasing the bone mineral density and strengthening the skeletal muscles.”

Vitamin D And The Immunomodulation Of Rotator Cuff Injury

This study has to do with the Rotator Cuff tendons of the shoulder, and how they need to heal and form strong attachments to the bone after surgery…

But the same principle may apply to Tennis or Golfer's Elbow, because we're dealing with a similar 'tendon attachment' at our elbows.
