Last Updated on February 17, With the advancement of technology, many health related problems and injuries which normally took years to recover from can now be treated much quicker.
One of the more frustrating injuries that continues to affect more and more people each and every year is tennis elbow. Again thanks to research and development, there is fantastic new product on the market called the tennis elbow flexbar which has been proven to work time and time again. So what is a flex bar for tennis elbow anyway?
The flexbar was created by a company called Performance Health Brands, which is the creator and maker of the Theraband Flexbar. This product was created after a study performed by Tim Tyler PT who had patients in a tennis elbow trial use a solid rubber bar flexible enough to twist to perform eccentric exercises in order to better their injury. Then half the group were given the flexbar so they could do eccentric wrist extension exercises for their injured arm.
This involved twisting the rubber bar with their uninjured arm and then slowly untwist the bar with their injured arm. So for example, if your elbow pain is in your right arm, you would hold the bar parallel to the floor with your arms extended and twist forward with your left hand.
And when I say slowly, I mean untwisting took 4 seconds. Below is a pic that shows you exactly how to use the flex bar: They were instructed by the researchers to do 15 repetitions for 3 sets each day for seven weeks. The results of the trial were overwhelmingly conclusive and positive!
Even better for the group that used the device was the tenderness on the outside of their elbow also decreased! You may be wondering … How does the tennis elbow flexbar work and why is it so effective? The answer lies in the density of the rubber of the bar combined with the eccentric negative movement in which you perform the motion.
Combined that with the fact that there were no side effects of using the bar and tennis elbow sufferers can do this simple exercise at home, at anytime.
Win — Win! This device had been made to put up with abuse. Not only does it help improve the strength in your forearm extensor muscles but it helps improve your grip strength as well. The flexbar comes in four different colours, each with a different resistance levels. The easiest to bend and twist is the yellow one. Then it is the red, followed by the green and then the blue. The yellow only requires 6lbs of force in order to use properly. The red requires 10lbs of force, green 15lbs of force and blue is the toughest — it requires 25lbs of force.
I would recommend that you start out with the red flexbar and then progress each month onto the green and then the blue. Here is a quick little instructional video tutorial on how to use it: So where is the best place to purchase your flexbar for tennis elbow? Do you really want to wait that long? Want to know the fastest and quickest way to heal your tennis elbow?
Combine the flex bar with a proven, in home treatment program and you have the complete solution!

How to Cure Your Elbow Problems in 5-minutes a Day - Theraband
View All A new treatment for tennis elbow uses a strengthening tool called the TheraBand FlexBar to relieve tennis elbow pain. Traditional treatment of tennis elbow pain has focused on avoiding most activities of the elbow and forearm in an effort to avoid "overuse" of the tendons that are irritated in tennis elbow. However, new research is looking at the role of strengthening exercises and how these can be used to alleviate the pain of tennis elbow. These exercises are specifically designed to perform eccentric strengthening maneuvers — a technique that has been successful in patients with Achilles tendonitis pain.
