The Tennis Elbow brace was in the news recently. In the Wall Street Journal.
The assertion was that braces and bands can relieve the pain of Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow, by applying compression to the forearm muscles or by limiting the mobility of the wrist.
This video takes a closer look at this frequently recommended method of treating Tennis Elbow – And the question of whether braces and other supports have any benefit beyond pain relief.
Most Tennis Elbow sufferers I’ve treated who chose to wear a brace or support before seeing me have said that it did “make it feel better” – temporarily, anyway.
But, the key question I think we need to ask is: Will it help your injury HEAL?
