Hammer Curls Instead of Barbell Curls

Will I be denying myself of maximum growth if I just do hammer curls instead of barbell curls. I need to let this annoying forearm pain heal so I'm forced to do this . Also, would it be ok to twist the dumbell as it comes up, so it's like a half-hammer half-normal dumbell curl?

    Rather than than worsen the injury. I found with the pains I had that close grip chins helped a great deal, good bicep work and zero discomfort - I then finish with a few HCs

    i cant barbell curl either, get forearm tendonitis every time i try

    Close grip chins hurt alot less for me, but i just stick to hammer curls and cables, which dont cause me much pain.

    I had the same, stuck to db curls and pain stopped

    Now use EZ on preacher bench

    Just do what you can and try to stop it hurting, otherwise you'll just f**k yourself up

    What difference does the incline make when doing curls? I understand the difference with chest excercises but always wondered about curls?
