What is a tennis elbow brace?
Tennis elbow is also known as Lateral Epicondylitis as the pain affects the area of the elbow known as the lateral epicondyle. Tennis elbow is a painful overuse condition that doesn't just affect tennis players. Tennis elbow commonly occurs during gripping activities such as using a hammer or screwdriver. Wearing a tennis elbow strap or support during these gripping activities can help prevent tennis elbow and can reduce the symptoms if you have tennis elbow and can't avoid work-related gripping activities.
How can a golfers elbow brace help?
Golfers elbow is known as medial epicondylitis as it affects the medial epicondyle on the inner side of the elbow joint. It is due to overuse, but it doesn't just affect golfers. A golfers elbow strap or support can be an excellent method of relieving pain in cases of a golfer's elbow.
Elbow supports are more appropriate where there is arthritis and joint pain in the elbow joint, or for support following an elbow fracture or elbow surgery. The warmth and support of the neoprene elbow support are extremely therapeutic and can help to relieve pain and swelling.
Common tennis and golf elbow injuries
Stretching the wrist muscles and ligaments causes collagen breakage and can result in tiny rips and irritation around the posterior epicondyle, that is the skeletal bulge on the exterior of your elbows. Tendonitis develops from these tiny rips over age, and they may also undergo partial or complete thickness rips.
Tennis or golfer's elbow might be brought on by a variety of activities, including:
- Manual labor, including piping or laying bricks.
- Racquet athletics like tennis as well as squash.
- Sports involving throwing, such as javelin and discus.
- Remodeling and painting
- Professions that require modest, repeated arm or wrist motions, such as computing or practicing the piano.
- Practicing the violin and other hobbies that require flexing the elbow frequently.
