Epicondylitis Pain Treatment Sleeve with Forearm Strap
Epicondylitis, otherwise known as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow occurs from repetitive use of the wrist or elbow. Repetitive motions such as flexion or extension motions tend to irritate the tendon where it inserts to the bone. This causes inflammation and in some cases small tears.
To help this painful elbow condition one should wear a epicondylitis sleeve with a forearm strap, also called a counterforce brace.
This tennis elbow brace features a comfortable pad that can be placed on the affected area, either the inside (medial) or the outside (lateral). It is recommended to place the brace slightly (about a thumb's length) below the area that is irritated. This strap reduces the tension on the tendons at their insertion point to the bone by transferring the force farther down the arm.
This epicondylitis strap with ulnar relief provides many of the same benefits of a larger, more restrictive support with minimal interference to mobility and decreased bulk. The strap is easily adjustable for any arm and provides ideal compression for the muscles of the forearm without decreasing blood circulation. Its sleek design, versatility and effectiveness make it a viable option for a variety of conditions.
The wide range of five available sizing options helps ensure that each arm size will have a strap with the proper fit. Make sure to wear the brace snugly, but not so tight that you cut off circulation. It is crucial to have the proper balance of comfort and compression as a strap that it too tight will cause discomfort and prove difficult to wear consistently. One that is too big will not provide the vital compression benefits and may become a nuisance by changing position.
One can wear the brace throughout the day while trying to avoid repetitive activities.
Tennis Elbow Treatment Brace
The flat design fits smoothly to the arm as the thickness of the brace is only 3/16". It is constructed of premium grade latex-free neoprene material that warms and compresses the affected elbow. This material helps to reduce painful inflammation and encourages blood flow, speeding up the healing process. It is also quite durable, but soft against the skin.
The tennis elbow strap is easy to apply and adjust with the adjustable Velcro strap. With this strap you can adjust the compression that is applied to the injured elbow.
The sleek appearance and healing benefits of the epicondylitis strap help to make it a useful treatment method for a wide range of medical conditions, including:
- Elbow Tendonitis
- Medial epicondylitis, or golfer's elbow
- Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow
- Overuse or repetitive use due to work or sporting activities
- Elbow strains/sprains
- Other tendinopathies
