  1. I am also a powerlifter and played around with the oly lifts. About a year ago my olecranon(SP)wich of coarce was the distal atachment of tricps tendon. Icing anti imflams no help very painfull tendonitis. I was in a horible car accident two days ago-on impact the tendon obviously tore away from the insetion-Its not 100%tear or rupture but it is extremly painful andswollen feels weird when I try to contract it. Is there any way I can avoid surgery-someone please reply to me. Thanx
