The Shock Doctor Tennis Elbow Support Strap helps prevent and relieve mild to moderate pain associated with tennis and golf elbow.
It features an air cushion that provides even pressure to relieve pain from tendonitis. This cushion helps to absorb forces traveling up the muscles of the forearm that would otherwise reach the elbow tendons that attach the muscles to the elbow joint. To relieve the pain of tennis elbow, position the cushion over the outer elbow tendons immediately below the joint. For golf elbow, you should position it over the medial (inner) tendons.
The Shock Doctor Tennis Elbow Support Strap also provides moderate support for minor to moderate sprains or strains and instabilities during active recovery. In addition to soft tissue support it provides joint alignment, therapeutic warmth and improved blood flow.
The strap also improves proprioception – the bio-neurological awareness of stress and added support informs the muscle to contract to protect itself.
The Z Grip adjustable closure gives you the ability to adjust the fit of the strap to get the optimum balance between compression and comfort. It also gives you the ability to adjust this balance as circumstances require. For example, you can increase compression before a game of tennis or golf in order to increase protection from pain. Afterwards, you can reduce compression for greater all day wearing comfort.
The strap is a One Size Fits Most design.
To clean your Tennis Elbow Support Strap, hand wash it in lukewarm water using a mild soap or detergent. Then let it air dry. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Do not machine wash or tumble dry.
