Elbow Strap – What is the Best Tennis Elbow Brace or Support?

What is the Best Tennis Elbow Brace / Tennis Elbow Strap / Tennis Elbow Support?

An Elbow Strap and an Elbow Support comes in all shapes and sizes

As you can clearly see from the pictures of an Elbow Strap that I randomly selected from google images an Elbow Brace does indeed come in all shapes and sizes.
They vary from a tennis elbow band that is held in place by velcro fasteners through to full elbow sleeve support.






How Does an Elbow Strap Work?

An elbow strap works by providing pressure over the upper portion of the muscles attached to the lateral epicondyle. This pressure alters the angle at which the muscle tendon attaches to the lateral epicondyle. Just look at the subtle difference in the 2 pictures below.



This type of Elbow Strap has a “C-shaped” plastic part which goes round the back of the arm is reduces the squeezing effect on the forearm.





Some elbow bands are fitted with a piece that increases the pressure over the muscle belly. This piece is like a small pillow – some use an air cell, others a soft silicone-like material and this localises the pressure on the muscle more locally.





You can see other Elbow Supports consist of a neoprene sleeve that fits above and below the elbow – some of these have an Elbow Strap attached to the lower portion which works as described above.





Another type of Elbow Strap actually consists of 2 bands with a spacer between. The lower strap supports extensors that are deeply buried and harder to support near the elbow where tennis elbow straps are usually worn.


There are several other variations on these themes and now you can get an Elbow Strap which has a vibration device fitted to it and another which has electrical stimulation currents flowing from it.


The Best Tennis Elbow Strap?

I am not going to try and answer this one.

I am leaving it up to you to decide.

I would be interested in feedback about

  • how effective they were in relieving your symptoms
  • how comfortable they were to wear
  • how they lasted – did they fall apart
  • how easy they were to keep clean and odour free
  • anything else that you think is important to share
