One of the best ways to keep the elbows in peak physical condition following injury or after long-term usage is wearing elbow braces depending on the situation and physical condition. Using an elbow brace is essential particularly when playing your favorite sports especially when there is mild soreness involved. A good-quality elbow brace is especially useful for sports such as tennis, basketball, volleyball, and other sports that require consistent overhead action. The proper brace is also a critical part of a successful physical therapy regimen.
Elastic braces, in particular, are best for epicondylitis—specifically golfer's elbow and tennis elbow. We at BraceAbility offer a wide range of elastic elbow braces and elastic elbow supports to help treat both types of epicondylitis as well as other elbow disorders and conditions.
What Is Tennis Elbow and How Can an Elastic Elbow Brace Help?
Lateral epicondylitis, better known as tennis elbow, is a condition wherein the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender. Tennis elbow is an overuse injury that can be caused by racquet sports such as tennis (hence the name), badminton, squash, racquetball, etc. Patients suffering from tennis elbow feel acute pain in the affected part when the arm is extended. There are several options available when it comes to treatment for tennis elbow, such as taking medication—specifically non-steroidal/anti-inflammatory drugs—and even surgery for the most persistent cases. However, the cheapest, simplest, and most effective treatment is the use of an elastic brace, specifically an elastic elbow support or an elastic elbow brace.
Elastic bands and elastic supports mainly help reduce pain in the afflicted area, which allow people suffering from lateral epicondylitis to return to their sports or other physical activity.
How Can an Elastic Elbow Support Help Treat Golfer's Elbow?
Medial epicondylitis or golfer's elbow is an inflammatory condition of the medial epicondyle. Golfer's elbow, just like lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, is an overuse injury. Golf, as its name suggests, is one of the many causes of golfer's elbow, the others being racquet sports, throwing sports, weight training, and even activities that involve repetitive wrist, hand, or arm movements such as hammering and chopping wood. Left untreated, golfer's elbow may cause chronic elbow pain, limited range of motion in the afflicted area, and a lasting and fixed bend (contracture) in the elbow.
The treatment for golfer's elbow may include anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone or steroidal injections, and stretching exercises. One of the most effective solutions, however, is wearing an elastic elbow brace or elastic elbow sleeve. An elastic brace helps reduce strain at the elbow epicondyle and limits pain provocation as well as protects against further damage even while you continue playing your chosen sport.
