Tennis Elbow Support

WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR AN ELBOW SUPPORT DURING TENNIS?

 

Tennis elbow injuries are so common they have their own title- Tennis elbow! Tennis elbow, also called lateral epicondylitis, occurs due to overuse of the elbow muscle due to the swinging movement. It causes pain on the outside of your elbow, unlike Golfer's elbow where the pain is on the inside.

Wearing an elbow support can aid in preventing common injuries due to overuse of muscles while playing tennis. Take a look at the best elbow braces which can aid in preventing and treating Tennis elbow and Golfer's elbow.

 

WHY BAUERFEIND ELBOW BRACE?

 

Bauerfeind supports and braces have medical-grade compression which provides improved circulation and lactic acid elimination.

  • Compression helps in preventing sprains and severe injuries as it oxygenates the muscles and reduces swelling. 
  • A Bauerfeind elbow support both protects the elbow to prevent injury and aids with the treatment by enhancing stability and proprioception.
  • The 3D weaved breathable moisture-wicking fabric is unique to Bauerfeind supports and braces, not found in neoprene sleeves and braces.

    WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON ELBOW INJURIES IN TENNIS?

    We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common tennis elbow injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.

    • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
    • Chronic tennis elbow. It can take 6 months to 12 months to heal. Below 6 weeks, it is considered acute tennis elbow. If pain persists beyond a few weeks, see a doctor or medical specialist.
    • Tendinitis. Rarely does this condition require surgery. It can generally be treated using a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. A corticosteroid injection may also be used.

    • Stress Fractures. Consult a sports medicine doctor X-rays. Recommended treatments include rest, anti-inflammatory medication, stretching, and muscle strengthening exercise. Stress fractures take about six weeks to heal.

    Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
