Many of our patients suffer from Tennis Elbow or Golfers Elbow. We wish this was because they are spending so much time doing their favourite sport but in reality they are often overworking their forearm muscles doing repetitive tasks at work. Often, it is hard to allow these muscles to heal as they become re-strained at work daily.
A simple velcro brace can be very helpful to facilitate healing. It tricks the body to use the muscle differently, often allowing the injured area to heal.
Many people find that they need to re-use this brace a few times per year as their issues reappear due to their ongoing work.
The video below is a very straightforward guide to choosing the proper brace, and applying it properly.
Please speak to your chiropractor when you are in if you have any further questions.
