Relief from Tennis and Golfers Elbow Pain

Posted on

The condition:

  Anyone with Tennis or Golfers Elbow will tell you about the pain and discomfort they feel when doing everyday tasks, especially anything which involves gripping, lifting, or bending the arm at the elbow. This condition, epicondylitis, can occur in two different forms; Tennis Elbow occurs when the tendon on the outside of the elbow is inflamed, and is know as Lateral epicondylitis. Golfers Elbow on the other hand, is when the inflammation is on the inside, and is know as medial epicondylitis.

 While Tennis Elbow usually clears up within a few months, it can last for over a year, and depending on the severity, it can have a serious impact on your quality of life. We hear from many customers who have developed this condition through work, and the advice they often hear is to stop working while the condition clears up. However, for most people with a mortgage, bills, children etc, this simply isn’t an option.


Treatments:

 There are a number of things you can do to speed up the healing of tennis or golfers elbow. The first one, as mentioned above, is to rest the elbow as much as possible. Reducing the strain on the tendon will allow it to heal, and allow the inflammation to gradually subside. Cold therapy can also help to reduce the discomfort and inflammation, so applying a cold pack to the area every day may help in some cases, and painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen can also be of benefit to some people. For more severe cases, physio treatment or corticosteroid injections may be considered.

 One effective and very popular way of reducing the strain on the tendon is to wear a tennis elbow support, especially during the activity that causes the most tennis elbow pain. These may be referred to as a support, a brace, or a clasp, but all essentially work in the same way. Our Actesso Blue Tennis Elbow Strap, for example, is actually one of our most popular products, receiving some great feedback from people who have been suffering from Tennis and Golfers elbow.

 This great product works due to the triangular pressure pad, which puts a gentle amount of pressure on the sore tendon. This pressure prevents the tendon from being used to it’s full extent, which over time can allow it to heal quicker. It is designed so as not to be too bulky, which is something many of these supports suffer from being, and means the Actesso Blue Tennis Elbow Strap can be worn discreetly under clothing. It’s also easy to put on, and can be adjusted to fit almost anyone, coming in one universal size. A number of people who have tried this support actually notice an instant improvement, with at least some of the pain subsiding almost immediately, although best results are usually seen after a couple of weeks of use.
