Here are some simple and practical tips to alleviate Tennis elbow and Golfers elbow pain:

Avoid repetitive movement and take regular breaks:
Avoid repetitive movement such as typing or using a mouse for extended periods. Introducing regular breaks helps prevent stress accumulation in the muscles, nerves, and ligaments of the elbow and forearm. Consider simple desk-based exercises that take just 2-3 minutes to perform.
Keeping your elbow slightly bent places the muscles and ligaments in a neutral, more comfortable position. Rest your forearm on the table and keep your wrist in a neutral position to avoid bending upwards or downwards by using a wrist pad or ergonomic mouse and avoiding stresses on the forearm muscles that attach to the elbow. Also, keep your computer or laptop screen is 5 to 10 degrees below your horizontal line of sight to keep your cervical spine neutral. This prevents nerve pain that may extend into the arm and forearm, potentially complicating tennis and golfer's elbow.
Cold Packs:
Use cold packs to reduce inflammation and soreness in the elbow. Cold therapy can be particularly effective after a long day or strenuous activity. HERE are the cold packs that I use and recommend.
Stress Management:
The high-pressure environment of an executive role can exacerbate elbow pain due to increased muscle tension from Mental stress. Stress can alter your posture, often resulting in shrugged and rounded shoulders and a forward head posture. This poor posture can change muscle dynamics, leading to pain that radiates to the elbow. Incorporate stress management  such as using essential oils, practicing deep breathing exercises, meditating, or engaging in mindfulness to reduce stress and its physical manifestations.
By adopting these strategies, you can effectively manage and reduce the inflammation associated with tennis and golfer’s elbow, ensuring you remain active and pain-free despite their busy schedules. Remember, taking proactive steps to manage your health not only helps in recovery but also prevents the recurrence of such painful conditions.
HERE is an easy way to reduce the inflammation from Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow, that does not involve any pills, meal replacements, just a clean (and easy!) diet and exercises (can be increased or reduces to suit your level of physical activity).
