Sometimes referred to as a golfers elbow brace, the primary focus of the Formfit Golfers Elbow Support is to manage the condition of golfers elbow (or medial epicondylitis as it’s known clinically), however it can also be used for tendonitis and other elbow related conditions.
Where pain is centred on the inside of the elbow joint it is referred to as golfers elbow, not to be confused with tennis elbow which is where the pain is centred on the outside of the elbow.
It is worth noting that despite the name of the condition there are numerous other activities which lead to such a diagnosis, all of which are repetitive tasks such as painting or even playing the violin.
As with its lateral epicondylitis counterpart it is thought that the condition will heal naturally within a couple of years, with the pain being exacerbated when undertaking certain tasks. It may not always be possible or you may not want to stop a certain task for such a long period of time and this is why many sufferers opt to wear a golfers elbow strap to apply compression to the affected area.
A golfers elbow brace (or support) is a strap based design which applies targeted compression to the medial epicondyle (inside of the elbow). The design allows you to adjust the level of compression applied as during a specific activity the pain may increase and require a greater level of compression compared to when resting. It is this pain and inflammation of the condition which affects overall movement of the joint, with compression working to manage this inflammation and with it help to reduce pain levels, thereby improving overall functionality and mobility.
The product is also very slim by design, therefore it can be worn under clothing.
If your injury requires the application of compression over a greater area i.e. bruising, then you should look at an elbow compression sleeve as an alternative and sits at the top of the forearm, running to the mid-point of the bicep.
Diagnosis is important for every injury. If you know what you have then you know how to treat it in the most effective way. In this case it’s important that the golfers elbow strap is focusing its attention on the correct area (the inside of the elbow) to offer the maximum benefit.
Selecting the correct size is also important as all braces are designed to be tight fitting, but not too tight and certainly not too big that it doesn’t stay in place. Despite it being an adjustable product you should start by measuring the circumference of your arm, just below the elbow joint.
Please note: circumference of the arm just below the elbow is required in order to select the correct golfers elbow support.

||Only lost a star as I have experienced a little itching from the support pieces, otherwise works well. I have rinsed it and hope that this will cure the problem.|
