Tennis elbow is also known as Lateral Epicondylitis as the pain affects the area of the elbow known as the lateral epicondyle. Tennis elbow is a painful overuse condition that doesn't just affect tennis players. Tennis elbow commonly occurs during gripping activities such as using a hammer or screwdriver. Wearing a tennis elbow strap or support during these gripping activities can help prevent tennis elbow and can reduce the symptoms if you have tennis elbow and can't avoid work related gripping activities.
Golfers elbow is known as medial epicondylitis as it affects the medial epicondyle on the inner side of the elbow joint. It is due to overuse, but it doesn't just affect golfers. A golfers elbow strap or support can be an excellent method of relieving pain in cases of golfers elbow.
Neoprene elbow supports are more appropriate where there is arthritis and joint pain in the elbow joint, or for support following an elbow fracture or elbow surgery. The warmth and support of the neoprene elbow support is extremely therapeutic and can help to relieve pain and swelling.
