Which Elbow Brace is Right for Me?

By Fara Rosenzweig

From hyperextension, overuse, tendinitis or tennis/golf elbow, wearing an elbow brace that offers compression and support can help alleviate pain and speed up recovery.


An elastic armband, which wraps around the forearm — just below the injured elbow — helps alleviate pain and keeps inflammation at a minimum. Ideal for those with golfer's/tennis elbow or needs temporary pain relief due to tendonitis.

Elbow Pad/Sleeve

Designed for comfort and compression, an elbow sleeve or elbow pad protects athlete's elbow during physical activity. This kind of bracing keeps the elbow stabilized and pain at a minimum. Great for volleyball, basketball or even during job-related activities that require cushioning elbow protection.

Hinged Elbow Brace

A hinged elbow brace is ideal for supporting a hyperextended elbow. Bilateral hinges help manage elbow extension and flexion with stops to support unstable elbows. This type of brace is ideal for a previously hyperextended elbow looking for additional protection during sport as well as for a recently injured elbow as it recovers.
