Golfer's elbow (Medial Epicondylitis) and tennis elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis) are conditions that cause pain on the inside (medial) and outside (lateral) of the elbow, respectively. The conditions are aggravated by gripping activities and are common in people who do a lot of activities where there is a lot of lifting and using the fingers and wrist, such as tennis and golf. Pain caused by tennis/golfer's elbow can often radiate down the forearm.
Supports designed to treat these conditions work by helping dampen vibration, stress and strain at the medial/lateral elbow by helping to stabilize and cushion the flexor and extensor muscles in the forearm. They are specifically designed to help provide dynamic compression and support to the forearm muscles and elbow tendon complex.
Supports not specialized in the treatment of Tennis/Golfer's Elbow are better suited for treating other conditions such as ligament and soft tissue injuries as well as conditions, including arthritis.
