How to Prevent and Treat Golfers Elbow

Do you suffer from pain in your elbow when you grasp something or throw a ball, and the pain reaches the little round bone on the inner elbow? You might be suffering from golfers elbow.


Golfers elbow, or medial epicondylitis, much like tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), is caused by the repeated movement of the palm toward the forearm applying a strain on the inner tendons and muscles attached to the inner part of the elbow bones (wrist flexors), causing pain. If the flexors are overused, it causes inflammation.


Called golfers elbow, the medial epicondylitis is however not confined to golfers. Actually, a lot of people suffer from it without ever playing golf. It is common among people over using their arm doing different activities, such as painting, raking, typing, turning doorknobs, picking something up with the palm down, even shaking hands, and can be worsened by opening a jar.



The causes of golfers elbow can also be a direct injury to the inner elbow. Sometimes when this happens, the muscles can be partially torn. It can also be caused by a neck problem.


When you cannot bend your elbow, it looks hot and swollen and you are running a fever or you suspect you broke a bone, seek medical help to properly diagnose golfers elbow and receive appropriate treatment. Left untreated, you might suffer from persistent elbow pain. Wearing a good golfers elbow band can alleviate the symptoms and help the healing.


A Golfers Elbow Band - the Aircast Pneumatic Armband

The best golfer elbow band must be comfortable around the arm, while putting pressure only on the muscle attached to the tendon on the inner elbow. This prevents the overuse of the tendon and spreads the strain along the forearm.


The Aircast Pneumatic Armband can help. It comes with a permanently sealed aircell, a small inflated pouch, to cushion the injured muscle. The aircell applies more pressure on the muscle and less around the arm, for good blood circulation. The adjacent muscles are not constricted this way so you do not lose any flexibility.


The Aircast Pneumatic Armband is lined with soft absorbent foam to help keep it in place, making it one of the best golf braces.


How Treat Golfers Elbow

How do you treat golfers elbow if you already suffer from it? Consult your doctor for the proper treatment, which should include physiotherapy, anti-inflammatory analgesics and a brace or band for golfers elbow. Comfortable and versatile, the Aircast Pneumatic Armband can be worn during the entire rehabilitation and healing period.


You can wear the Aircast Pneumatic Armband after the healing period to prevent golfers elbow from reoccurring. The muscle inside the elbow should also be strengthened to help decrease its chances of sustaining injury and you can wear the armband anytime you have something to do that involves rotating your wrist. It can make the whole difference between reoccurring unpleasant pain from golfers elbow and pain-free sporting and ordinary activities.
