About a year ago I injured my elbow somehow while in a boxing class. I was throwing left hooks at my instructor, who had the hand pads on (I'm not sure the actual terminology, I didn't take the class long unfortunately). Apparently I had decent left hook because he was having trouble giving me resistance when I landed the punch. It got to where he put all his strength into stopping my punch, and I obviously put all my strength into the punch and when it hit it was like hitting a wall. When the punch landed I felt a pop in my outer elbow (to the best of my memory) and the pain was immediate. Being my stubborn, prideful self I continued on with the class through the pain without telling anyone. It's now been over a year later and I still have the pain in my elbow. It isn't continuous, mostly just when I lift things or there's a decent amount of resistance on my elbow. I was just curious what could possibly be wrong with my elbow and if there's any stretches or exercises that I could do to eventually strengthen my elbow to the condition it was once in. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
What you have is likely tennis elbow. This can be an extremely persistent injury and hard to fix if you don't follow the healing protocol to the letter. This type of injury can be aggravated doing almost anything once you have the injury. Check out my signature for more information on healing this type of injury.
