Have you ever felt limited by joint pain? The truth is, very few of us haven’t experienced injury, stiffness, or pain in our joints. And unfortunately, many of us are given diagnoses like ‘tendonitis’ without any promise of recovery.
In this episode, we chat with Steven Low, author of Overcoming Gravity, Overcoming Poor Posture, and now Overcoming Tendonitis, about how to overcome tendonitis and tendinopathy based on the latest research and his own clinical experience.
We answer questions you all brought up, including:
how a pain ‘habit’ can be the biggest inhibitor to recoveryhow to address a longstanding elbow tendonitishow to adjust or modulate your activity levelshow to know when you can start working out and doing stuff againthe efficacy of diet and supplements
Whatever damage you were told you have, Steven shares how you can recover from tendonitis with patience and a well directed program.
