- Treatment of epicondylitis of the humerus: lateral (tennis elbow) and medial (golfer’s elbow)
- Rehabilitation after elbow injuries
- prevention of elbow joint overloads
- after sports injuries (tennis, golf, badminton) enabling a faster return to training
- in acute and chronic pain syndromes of the elbow joint of various etiologies
- inflammation of soft tissues and osteoarticular apparatus
- when performing heavy physical work leading to a significant overload of the elbow joints
- Tutor made of elastic and breathable fabric
- Pads located at the level of the medial and lateral epicondyle of the humerus
- adjustment of the pressure force of the pelottes by means of an additional tape fastened with velcro
- universal supply of the right and left upper limbs
- color gray-blue
- providing compression at the site of inflammation
- easy to put on and take off
- reduction of pain and muscle tension
- comfortable and easy operation
- enabling the continuation of physical activity
- During each movement, a special compression knitwear, with built-in silicone inserts, performs a micro-massage that stimulates blood circulation at the site of muscle attachments
- Thanks to the compression pads, the pressure is directed to the proximal attachments of extensors and flexors of the forearm and hand muscles, which minimizes the risk of overloading and tearing
TENNIS ELBOW / GOLFER’S ELBOW
Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the lateral epicondyle of the humerus, i.e. the so-called enthesopathy. It is caused by overloading the extensors and supinators of the forearm and wrist. It is formed as a result of the cyclical movement of twisting and turning the forearm and elbow. The ailment has its name from the sport – tennis, because it is most activated during the backhand movement, but it also applies to those practicing other disciplines: baseball, golf or squash, as well as completely unsporting physical activities. This condition is characterized by the occurrence of severe pain at the site of muscle attachment on the medial part of the elbow joint.
Golfer’s elbow is also an inflammation of the medial epicondyle of the humerus. It is the result of overloading the musculotenary junction on the medial side of the elbow. The nomenclature derives from golf, because many scientists believe that squeezing the golf club too hard causes an increased load on the wrist flexors and at the same time increases the tension of the tendon within the elbow. This ailment is also observed in baseball players and bodybuilders. This condition is characterized by the occurrence of severe pain at the site of muscle attachment on the outer part of the elbow joint.
An excellent solution to prevent and treat enthesopathy in the elbow area is the use of orthoses with a special compression knitted fabric with built-in silicone inserts that perform micromassage, stimulating blood circulation and in the place of muscle attachments, accelerating the healing process.
