Check out shock wave therapy. I had tendonitis , both elbows, and achilles and it worked for about 90 percent resolution .

Glad to hear the pin firing is working for you, in my experience it's like Buckley's. Feels awful...but it works!

From what I've read (no consult yet) I have golfer's elbow in my right arm. It's severe enough that I can't let my pickup tailgate down slowly with my right arm. It started near the end of a post and rail fence project for horses, some 300 post holes dug by hand with a set of diggers. I've been resting it as much as possible and it's slowly improving. I'm really hoping for a nonsurgical recovery...

Staying tuned to this thread, I have just started looking at my elbows due to pain. Specialist has me a neurology appointment and Therapy scheduled. I figured it might be from my neck but my neck hasn’t felt this good in years. Specialist keep looking at my wrists and my carpal tunnel though.

Mine only flairs up when I’m working hard with my hands and grip. I’ll work out the knots in my forearm tendons myself or if it’s real bad go to physical therapist for Massage.

For me it's Osteo Arthritis in my left shoulder. Flare ups are hell. Usually a few days of Voltaren and Tylenol to tame it down.

I dealt with severe tendonitis in both elbows for years. Went through the PT route and cortisone injections for a long time until they no longer gave relief. Also did a round of PRP injections in one elbow, didn't help much. Finally had to go the surgical route as I had multiple issues contributing to the tendonitis. Had a tear in the right elbow and had subluxating ulnar nerves in both elbows. January of last year had the right elbow repaired and in March had the left elbow done. Recovery was long and quite painful. Finally at a year post surgery my right elbow is 100% as is the strength. Left elbow is mostly there, still some discomfort around the ulnar nerve. But i no longer get stabbing pains when I pick something up and it doesn't wake me up at night anymore.
