Tennis Elbow Support Strap Heat and Ice Wrap
This elbow support band is designed to treat a number of conditions, including:
- Tennis elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
- Golfers elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)
- Industrial elbow
- Computer elbow (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
This tennis elbow support band helps with these conditions with a gel pouch that provides cold therapy and an air pouch for compression therapy. These pouches can be inserted into the circumferential band that holds them against the body. The pocket that holds the air and gel pads does include a thin layer of fabric to prevent the cold pack from freezing the skin.
The placement and fit of this elbow support for tennis elbow can be easily adjusted to fit a user's needs. The strap for tennis elbow is available in a universal size that fits forearm circumferences ranging from 8 - 14 inches. The circumferential ice or heat band can easily be adjusted and secured via a simple velcro closure.
The strap for tennis elbow is lined with soft foam for a comfortable fit. This liner also acts as a buffer between the skin and the plastic component of the closure of the elbow band.
For added convenience, this strap for elbow pain works for either the right or left arm. See BraceAbiliity's full line of elbow injury supports.
Elbow Gel Strap for Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, Industrial Elbow and CTS
Tennis elbow refers to painful inflammation of the tendons that connect the forearm muscles at the outside of the elbow. Overuse of these tendons as might occur in tennis and other racket sports is typically the cause of this condition. See more tennis elbow orthotics.
Golfer’s elbow is very similar, but with this injury the inflamed tendons are at the inner part of the elbow. It, too, can be caused by racket or throwing sports, as well as weight lifting, assembly line work, raking, using a computer for long periods of time, etc. In sum, the inner elbow pain of golfer's elbow is caused by activities that require repeated bending and straightening of the elbow. See additional braces for golfer’s elbow treatment.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) refers to burning, tingling, numbness, weakness or pain that stems from pressure on the median nerve that runs from the forearm to the palm. Some are simply born with smaller carpal tunnels (the channel through which the median nerve passes where it is restricted), which makes them more prone to CTS. But this condition can also be brought on by injury, conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or pregnancy that cause swelling, or the use of vibrating tools. Learn more about carpal tunnel treatment.
All three of these injuries can be classified as repetitive strain injuries (RSI). Thus, treatment is quite similar for all of them.
Reducing or avoiding the stressful motions is a major part of treatment, as is applying ice and compression to reduce inflammation. The cold and compression pouches of this golfer's elbow strap can help to both of these ends. And it is easy to adjust the placement of the cold/compression component for optimal treatment of each condition
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroids can also help reduce pain and swelling.
Other steps for treatment of RSI injuries include stretching and strength exercises as well as improving one's form while doing certain activities so as not to irritate the sensitive area.
