Arm Tendonitis Brace for Epicondylitis Treatment
This elbow pain relief brace includes elbow pads for medial or lateral condyle massage as well as a stabilizing strap that transverses the forearm.
These features make this one of the best braces for lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (golf elbow), tendomyopathy, elbow strains/sprains and other acute or chronic injuries in the vicinity of the joint. This brace can even be used after tennis elbow surgery, arthroplasty and other surgeries to restore function to one’s elbow.
The lateral/medial epicondylitis brace applies targeted compression to the painful area of one’s tendon. Plus it can reduce pressure on the tendon.
The band of the elbow brace can easily be tightened to one’s desired level of support. Its placement can also be tweaked as needed for treatment of either medial epicondylitis or lateral epicondylitis.
The tendonitis arm brace has silicone massage pads that provide intermittent massage to areas targeted for medial and lateral epicondylitis treatment. This massage eases tension, inflammation and pain.
The medial epicondylitis pad brace with a strap is composed of form-knitted material that has an antimicrobial finish. This makes the Bort epicondylitis bandage sanitary and it helps with odor management.
The pressure-reduced area over the bony prominence of the elbow adds to its appeal as one of the best elbow braces for medial or lateral epicondylitis. This makes it a more flexible and comfortable lateral/medial epicondyle brace for athletic or daily use.
The soft edges of the brace for epicondylitis make it comfortable to wear. Plus they are designed to ward off snagging.
The tennis elbow brace is 7.9 inches long, providing an ideal amount of coverage and support.
When selecting a lateral or medial epicondylitis splint, getting the right size is crucial to unlocking its benefits. A splint for epicondylitis that is too tight will compromise one’s circulation and irritate the arm, while one that is too loose will slide around, preventing even the best tennis elbow brace from working.
This bilateral forearm brace comes in six different sizes fitting a wide range of forearm circumferences, so one should have no trouble finding a size that fits well.
Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis Treatment Brace
Lifting a child over and over again, swinging a golf club or tennis racquet, or having a career that requires vigorous use of one’s forearm muscles (painters, carpenters, etc.) can overwork the tissues around one’s muscles, causing epicondylitis.
Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, refers to pain and inflammation of the tendons where they attach at the outer part of the elbow. Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylitis, refers to pain and inflammation of these same tissues where they attach to the bony bump at the inner part of the elbow. In either case, said pain might radiate down the arm.
In both cases, this elbow pain stems from overusing/overstraining these connective tissues. Therefore, treatment focuses on reducing strain on the tissues and resting them so that healing can occur.
Besides taking a break from irritating activities, this might involve icing the painful area to reduce swelling and wearing an elbow brace for epicondylitis. The forearm strap makes this one of the best elbow braces for tendonitis, as it applies counter force that lessens strain on the tendons and muscles of one’s forearms.
The massage provided by the silicone pads in this medial epicondylitis elbow brace is also a great reliever of tension and a stimulator of blood flow, which helps reduce inflammation and encourages healing.
If these self-care measures do not help, a doctor may recommend physical therapy aimed at stretching and strengthening the muscles of one’s arm. If one’s elbow pain persists, surgery may be needed. In the aftermath, one can also use this as a golf or tennis elbow surgery brace for a bit of extra support and compression.
As previously noted, speaking of this solely as a lateral or medial epicondylitis elbow brace sells it short. It can help with conservative and post-surgical care for numerous injuries to the joint.
