Re: Questions on Tendonitis

you might try a arm band that goes around the fore arm just below the elbow. it about 2 or 3 in wide with velcrow to hold it in place. i had one for a couple months and it takes the presure off the elbow. it worked for me.

Re: invasion-mania

i was told by a friend that i would get more reaction by drilling the bal hole deeper with a smaller bit in place of large bit and shallow hole . like a 3/4 in hole 3 in deep would be better then 1 inch hole 1-1/2 inches deep. any truth to that?
