This elbow counterforce brace features a simple, wrap-around design and helps in treating elbow tendonitis such as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow. Golfer's elbow and tennis elbow are two types of elbow tendonitis, more specifically known as medial epicondylitis and lateral epicondylitis. The difference has to do with whether the irritated area is at inner (medial) or outer (lateral) side of the elbow. Overusing or repetitive motions can cause such flexion and extension motions that irritate the tendon where it inserts to the bone, causing inflammation and small tears. A counterforce brace is used to reduce the tension on the tendons by transferring force farther down the arm, reducing pressure on the painful area around one's elbow. It is recommended that patients place the brace slightly below the painful area. Using this brace can help to decrease pain and increase grip strength. This brace also comes with a pad for targeted compression. This extra pad can help reduce vibrations that might irritate one's elbow, such as when operating power tools or riding a motorcycle. The neoprene that this brace is made of a soft, warm, and latex free material. The material warms and compresses the elbow, helping to reduce inflammation by stimulating blood flow throughout the arm. Its low-profile design means one can comfortably wear it all day long or during athletic activities that irritate one's arm tendons. The counterforce elbow brace can easily be put on and taken off by using the Velcro strap. By using this strap one can adjust the compression that the brace applies to the arm. The brace should fit snugly, but not so tight that one's fingers or arm starts to become numb. Since this brace is a universal size, it can easily be adjusted to fit most individuals. It will fit forearm circumferences up to 12 inches.
