A tennis elbow brace will help to relieve the pain of tennis elbow by reducing the vibrations travelling through your forearm muscles and reaching your elbow tendons. The medical name for tennis elbow is lateral epicondylitis. Hence, this type of elbow brace is sometimes referred to as an epicondylitis brace. We briefly discuss the types of tennis elbow brace and then suggest pointers for choosing the best brace.
There are 3 types of brace available on the market for treating tennis elbow. The first is a basic strap that goes around the forearm just below the elbow. The second is a sleeve that covers the elbow and part of the forearm. Thirdly, you can also buy a sleeve that also has an adjustable strap. You can usually reposition the strap to apply pressure to different parts of the elbow. This includes the inside of the elbow if you also need to treat golfers’ elbow pain.
Choosing The Best Tennis Elbow Brace
In choosing a brace to treat your lateral epicondylitis, we would suggest the following:
Look for a brace made from a breathable material. This choice will give you the long term wearing comfort you need to keep it on throughout a long day at the office and gain the maximum benefit;
If possible, try to make sure that your choice does not slide around on your elbow. The best tennis elbow braces will use some type of mechanism to ensure they adhere to your skin even during sweaty use;
A brace with a low profile design that allows you to wear it with business clothing as well as with sports attire.
If you are looking for an epicondylitis brace that is sized, we would suggest making sure that you follow the sizing instructions carefully. If your brace is too large, it may not apply sufficient pressure to ease your tennis elbow pain. On the other hand, if your epicondylitis brace is too small and tight, you may find it difficult to wear it for extended periods and get the expected therapeutic benefits.
