Yup, that experience range where they know enough to be dangerous, but not necessarily enough to be cautious.
Range of motion exercises are definitely reccomended if you aren't doing them already. I neglected those rehab-type activities on some early injuries and a few of my joints are still reminding me.
What are you throwing on it for support? I have used something like <strong>this</strong> in the past. It helped a little.
I posted in response to a Tomoe Nage once and screwed my elbow up good.
I used something similar to this [link] and found a big difference. I even had to wear it while working as a meat cutter for a while.
I suffer from medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) which mostly flares up with pulling movements like pullups and chin-ups. Among other things I've thrown at it (mobilization, massage, various anti-inflammatories), I use elbow sleeves. A little bit of compression helps (or seems to). I wear them daily in the gym, so they are on for Olympic lifts, though those lifts aren't the things that aggravate my tendonitis the most. The particular ones I use are these: [link]
However, I have to say that the most relief I've gotten has come from dietary changes. When I cut out grains and dairy completely, the tendonitis pain almost completely disappeared. Your mileage may vary on that, but I think that whatever anti-inflammatory benefits I got from those changes to my diet paid off the most in my gimpy elbows.
