Well, he tells me it's called 'golfer's elbow', and cranking open cat food cans could surely be the reason for the injury!

I am certainly not a golfer, so that's out. The doc gave me a list of exercises to do, plus the best use of a bag of frozen peas or corn kernels; put it on my sore elbow! I am to avoid strenuous things that make my elbow hurt (like, duh!). Funny thing is, at the office, I have to pull open doors to move around the facility, and pulling the doors open KILLS my elbow! Doc says go slow, take your time, and use good posture. Harrumph...
But the kitties must eat, so I continue to use my left hand to pop those cans open. Thanks to Katnip Lounge and Tails From The Foster Kittens for suggestions on can-opener devices. Oh, and the chiropractor doc has found a few spinal areas that need work too; kids, take it from me, treat your back NICELY when you are young, otherwise it will come back to haunt you later on...believe me when I say this!
