Pain occurs when the forearm muscles become tight and pull on their attachment to the epicondyle, which is a bony knob at the elbow; the medial epicondyle for the front of the forearm and the lateral epicondyle for the back of the forearm. Activity causes additional pull and continues the pain cycle. Relief is provided by placing a compressive barrier between the muscles and the epicondyle, effectively shifting the pull to the barrier. Taking the stress off the epicondyle helps prevent further injury and pain, and allows for more efficient healing.
Serola Gel Arc Elbow Brace
Solution For: Forearm Pain, Lateral Epicondylitis, Medial Epicondylitis, Golfer's Elbow, Tennis Elbow
This brace is much more comfortable than the previous one I have worn, which was a hard plastic. The Serola Elbow Brace is also less bulky and I am able to get in and out of clothing more easily with its slimmer fit.
