I am starting to do a lot of kids shows now and it is a lot of fun!
But sad to say, my elbow is starting to cause me a bit of pain!
I think it is RSI from using my balloon pump.
Has anyone had the same problem and how have you fixed it!
Thanks

I am not a doctor and I am not giving medical advice. My suggestions are meant only to help you understand a possiblity describing the nature of your injury.

Chronic injuries, such as you describe, develop over a period of time and require complete rest and a change in form to heal. Check your form, i.e. is your elbow at an odd angle when you are inflating balloons? If it is, adjust it. Also, rest your elbow. Try using your other arm.

It would be best for you to see a titled doctor for a more precise diagnosis and treatment plan.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

You might want to consider an electric pump to inflate your balloons.

I have been looking at it, its really when I tie the knots!

Thanks Patrick Differ! Rest is the key but that is going to be really hard to do!.

I am looking at making a balloon pump!
