The ABC Universal Elbow Strap™ is made from 1/8" latex-free neoprene with nylon on two sides. It also has a 2" circumferential, pressure adjusting strap for more support. It is a wonderful brace to help support the elbow and prevent tennis elbow.
Causes of Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is an overuse and muscle strain injury. The cause is repeated contraction of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may result in inflammation or a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your elbow (lateral epicondyle). (See Mayo Clinic Website for futher information)
