Elbow supports are devices designed to provide compression to ease elbow pain. Elbow support braces immobilize the elbow in case of elbow injuries or disorders like tennis elbow, tendinitis, hyperextension, overuse, etc. Their basic function is to reduce the strain on the injured elbow. Elbow supports are a conservative step in treatment of elbow and forearm injuries and disorders. Tennis elbow is a common condition requiring tennis elbow supports. It is also known as lateral epicondylitis. This is a kind of overuse injury that is caused due to repetitive hand motion.

How does an Elbow Support Work?

Elbow support and braces are designed with materials that provide just the right amount of compression while isolating the elbow tendons and restricting movement. This restriction helps the damaged tissue to repair while protecting it from getting injured again. It is recommended that the forearm strap used for prevention of re-injury should be worn little below the actual site of pain and not over it. Physical therapy is required for regaining complete elbow function like before.  An elbow strap is recommended to be worn during the day for several weeks until the injury heals completely. Even after that there is a fair chance of re-injury. There is a wide range of supports that help in preventing reoccurrence of the injury.  

What are the types of Elbow Supports and Braces?

Armband

An armband is a kind of elbow support used to alleviate temporary and light pain. It provides relief from pain caused due to tendonitis. Wrapped around the forearm, below the injured elbow, it is an elastic band.

Elbow Sleeve

An elbow sleeve majorly provides cushion and compression. It is to protect the elbow during any physical activity. The support it offers to arm avoids elbow pain and therefore gives a comfortable experience during any sport.

Hinged Elbow Brace

Hinged elbow brace is supportive fitted brace used to control the range of motion in the elbow joint. Hinged on either side it is designed to cease the elbow movement once it reaches 0 degrees and prevent it from moving back which can cause more injury to the joint.

Tennis Elbow Support

Tennis elbow support is used to treat a tennis elbow caused due to frequent motion and over use of arm and wrist.
