very comfortable strap, July 9, 2008

Mueller Hg80 Tennis Elbow Brace, Black, 1-Count Box
I have tendonitis in my right elbow, and was looking for something more comfortable and less "dorky" than the cheapo "tennis elbow" straps you can buy from Walgreens or the sporting goods section at WalMart. I found this strap on Amazon, and have been very pleased with it. It has held up well, and is very easy to adjust. Once on, it is comfortable and you don't have to keep adjusting it. It also does not slide down or cut off your circulation. It is easy to adjust if necessary, and has a thick "gel-like" pad inside that presses against the outer elbow in just the right spot without constricting movement. The band has a very "sporty" look, and comes with a small mesh bag so the velcro does not get hooked onto your workout clothing inside your gym bag.Update: In the more than year I have used it, it has supported my elbow well during weight-lifting sessions. In fact, I don't like to lift without it because I don't have the support. If necessary, I would purchase this item...

The support is simply a strap with a pressure pad stiched into it. It has a clip for tightening and velcro securement. The purpose is to put pressure on the tendon/muscle just in front of the tennis elbow pain area. Center the pad over the tendon/muscle involved and secure with the velcro strap. The pressure pad will take some pressure off the tendon insertion area on the bone allowing less stress for healing. Tendonitis heals very slowly, so plan on wearing this strap for several weeks or even months (for my latest tendontitis bout it was 4 months). The key is to not do anything that aggravates the tendonitis pain, as this reinjures the tendon and delays healing. I have found that warm packs twice a day (20-30 minutes per session) speeds healing by increasing circulation to the injured tendon. To apply the heat, take a cloth/towel...

Less cumbersome than my first one, and no latex (= no itch). Good sturdy support pad (the part that goes over the muscle). I'm getting another.
