Benefits of elbow orthoses
For elbow braces, we carry a wide range of elbow orthoses. These include compression supports for tennis elbow, elbow immobilizers, and elbow sleeves. There are also elbow orthoses that support hyperextension, slings and also epicondylitis straps for tendonitis. The elbow orthoses provide various benefits to aid elbow injuries. These include providing stability, protecting the elbow, reducing strain to the elbow, and making sure the elbow doesn’t move too much.
How does an elbow orthosis help with tennis elbow?
Tennis elbow, also known as Lateral Epicondylitis is a condition where the tendon in the elbow used to bend your wrist backward swells. This is often caused by the force of using a tennis racket to hit tennis balls when doing a backhand. But that is not the only cause of tennis elbow. It can also be caused by repetitive movements that use those tendons. This includes any repetitive hand motion such as painting, using a chainsaw, using a musical instrument, etc.
An elbow orthosis like a tennis elbow support brace is used to provide support to the outer part of the elbow. It also applies some pressure to the area. The brace provides pain relief and helps the area heal by limiting the force on the tendons. Elbow compression sleeves are also used to stabilize the joint, compressing the area and limiting how much the elbow can move.
