An elbow brace is a device that is made to wrap around the elbow to provide support. Elbow braces are typically used for people with injuries or weakness in their elbow.
Elbow braces can be of many different types and sizes, and they may be custom-made for a particular patient. They can be made from a variety of materials including leather, neoprene, aluminum, or plastic.
Elbow Brace Benefits
Elbow braces can offer a variety of benefits to people who have been dealt an injury. The most common elbow brace is the tennis elbow brace which will provide protection from further downward force on the downward facing arm and also reduce the risk of a possible injury. Protecting yourself against injury is one of the many benefits that come with wearing a brace.
Another benefit includes adding compression to the joint which can help relieve pain and provide relief.
