When tennis elbow strikes, nothing else matters. All you can think about is trying not to move your arm. The thought of those shooting pains going down your arm again is unbearable and you end up tense and uncomfortable across your whole body. Well there is an easier way to help cope with the restrictive movements and that’s by buying a tennis elbow brace. Not sure which one to get? Then read on and find out what we recommend.
You may be surprised to learn that tennis elbow is not limited to tennis players. Anyone can get tennis elbow even if they have never played before! The reason its called tennis elbow is because the movement you use in tennis is similar to the one that causes the tennis elbow injury. There is one way to prevent the tennis elbow injury and that is to work on the muscles in your forearm. You can do this by working out with weights and building up the muscles. This will help to prevent the tendon damage. If you have tennis elbow already then you are going to want to know how to treat it. Its best to treat it at home because that way you can fit into your schedule easier and won’t have to wait weeks for doctors appointments.
A tennis elbow brace is by far one of the best things ever invented. It not only holds your arm in place but gives your torn tendons time to heal and recover so that you can start to live again. If you have mild pain relating to your injury then we suggest a tubular bandage. It is light and gives minimal support while being completely flexible. If you have a day where its a bit more painful than usual then you can double the bandage up for double the support. If your pain is moderate then a neoprene support is a good idea. This support works well on any sports related injury and will work well on tennis elbow too. IT is still flexible but it sturdier in the support department. If you have agonizing pain or you feel petrified that you may move your arm accidentally then you can use a splint. This has metal supports in it so you know you couldn’t move your arm even if you wanted to. Combine all of this with some tennis elbow exercises and you have the perfect tennis elbow treatment.
