We highly recommend this splint for the following reasons:
-It is uniquely effective in the treatment of elbow pain that is not localized to one small area. This splint provides even compression to a wider area than the Aircast and Gel Arm Bands.
-Helps to prevent attacks of Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow.
-How it works: The Cho-Pat Tennis and Golfer's Elbow Splint is a compression device designed to comfortably support and relieve forearm muscles that are over-exercised or strained during athletic or work activities. It works by absorbing and properly dispensing the pain-causing forces of Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow, rather than allowing these forces to be passed on to the elbow. When this occurs:
Painful symptoms begin to subside...the elbow is "on the mend."
New attacks are prevented from occurring... "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
The splint has a unique, reinforced tongue that comfortably molds to the forearm and fastens with closures. Fits both the right and left arms.
Measure the circumference of the upper forearm, just below the elbow, to determine the appropriate size.
