The benefit of elbow supports

Elbow supports and elbow braces are designed to help manage the symptoms of conditions such as tennis elbow, golfers elbows and inflammation from overuse or impact injuries. They work by applying compression to the affected area, whether in the form of a band which applies pressure to a specific area or through a sleeve which offers compression over a greater surface area.

Sources of elbow injuries

The arm is in use across almost all forms of sport and exercise. You need to bend your elbow and swing your arms to aid in propulsion during walking and running. The arm muscles work hard to bend the elbow and produce the movement required to bowl a cricket ball, swing a racquet or throw a dart. Overuse of the muscles and tendons of the joint can lead to injury and pain. The use of elbow braces in the application of compression is a common tool to aid in a person’s rehabilitation.

Injuries can happen as a result of impact i.e. a fall or through overuse. Following impact damage you will typically experience swelling of the joint and surrounding area which can impair mobility, in more severe cases broken bones may be the end result. Swelling following a fall is largely self-limiting and some rest and ice to manage the inflammation will do the job, though to enhance mobility and offer proprioceptive benefits many opt to wear a compressive sleeve.
