I'm being treated for golfer's elbow. Ibuprofen has reduced the swelling & pain. I apply heat before practicing, and ice after. My problem is at gigs, I can't do the ice/heat thing very easily. I play fast & without a pick. My forearm seriously tenses up because i don't get a break between songs at gigs, and can't really relax it or stretch it out. my questions: what exercises/stretches do you recommend before playing a show (or do you just jump up there?). do you do any sort of conditioning? i've been avoiding playing alot outside of practice because i want the arm to rest. thanks for any suggestions!
