All you need to know about Elbow & Arm
What types of injury can an elbow brace help to heal?
Typical injuries that may require an elbow brace or support bandage include broken bones, sprains, fractures, conditions such as arthritis and tendonitis, and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis). A support can also help ease inflammation that may have occurred as a result of repetitive use, such as repetitive strain injury. Elbow and arm braces help ease discomfort and pain while resting the injury to give it a more successful chance of healing.
How do I properly wear an elbow brace?
If you don't wear your brace properly, you could exacerbate your injury by not giving it the correct support. Get your GP or healthcare professional to demonstrate how the brace properly works and how to take it on and off correctly. Always make sure the brace is correctly secured and that it is supportive but not too tight around the affected area. The brace should allow movement of the wrist and upper arm.
Are arm and elbow supports washable?
Yes – and you should take due care of your support bandage or brace to ensure that it remains in optimum condition. Many elbow braces are washable, so take care to follow the washing instructions correctly. After washing, make sure that all components of the brace are still working properly and secure.
Should I wear my elbow brace all day?
Always wear your brace as suggested by your GP. If you have an injury, you should perform regular activities while wearing the brace throughout the day. After a couple of weeks, you should start to notice an improvement in your condition. Your doctor may also prescribe anti-inflammatory medications. Speak to them if after two weeks you are not noticing improvements.
