A high quality tennis and golfers elbow strap used to reduce strain on the common flexor tendon / origin (golfers elbow on the inside of the joint) and the common extensor tendon and origin at the elbow (tennis elbow on the outside of the joint)
Who Should Use This?
The Mueller tennis and golfers elbow strap can be used from adolescence onwards to support the elbow and the attached muscles and tendons. It is suitable for sportsmen and women with larger forearms. For those of a slighter build we recommend the Mueller HG80 Tennis Elbow Brace.
This elbow strap can be used equally effectively for tennis elbow or golfers elbow during sporting activity or manual work.
How Does it Work?
All tendon straps work by compressing the volume of the tendon decreasing the longitudinal forces placed upon them during muscular contraction and activity. When the fingers grip or the wrist is used some of the muscular force is deflected around the strap thus reducing strain on the tendon origins at the elbow.
Sizing and Technical Information:
Physio Warehouse's therapists advise this brace is a high quality and effective product popular with manual workers and sports people alike. As with all tendon straps it is advised for patients with mild to moderate symptoms but not for tendon tears or acutely inflamed and severely painful injuries which should be treated by a professional.
One size fits elbows up to 43cm circumference or (17 inches) measured just below the elbow joint
