Know your Enerskin: Tennis Elbow (tendonitis/tendinitis) and Elbow Sleeves
Enerskin offers compression gear for a variety of body parts, but an elbow sleeve that compresses and pressurizes the muscles on your elbows could be exactly what you’re looking for. Compression elbow sleeves can help with tendinitis (or tendonitis) & related injuries like tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, or surfer’s elbow, as well as with everyday elbow soreness, aching, stiffness, swelling and pain. Tendonitis can take 7 or 8 months to heal from; anything that can speed up the recovery process helps. Enerskin elbow sleeves can also help enhance performance by utilizing their dual functionality of patented silicon taping technology and traditional compression to keep your muscles firm, in place and in sync with your body to improve user muscle strength, amongst other potential benefits.
Tennis Elbow Relief
Tennis elbow is a type of tendinitis generally caused by repetitive wrist or arm movements. It can affect tennis players, golfers, surfers & other athletes, or even people doing common household tasks like painting & gardening. Under 5% of all cases of tennis elbow are actually caused by tennis. When people are commonly stressing their elbow muscles, it is tough to prevent an injury like tennis elbow - it can happen to anyone. Tennis elbow affects 1% to 3% of the population overall, and as many as 50% of tennis players during their careers. Those who suffer from tennis elbow type tendinitis notice tension or pain when they extend or bend their wrists, or turn their forearms; this pain is caused by inflammation of fibers that attach muscles from the outer elbow to the wrist & hands. This kind of tendinitis takes a long time to heal - in many cases, up to 7 to 8 months. Utilizing compression gear like an elbow sleeve can keep these muscles tight, supported and stabilized. This will help reduce swelling and inflammation on the fibers, removing stress from the elbow and thus helping its muscles stay in tune.
Enerskin’s elbow sleeves don’t just help those who are recovering from pain. These sleeves are proven via extensive research and development to help increase the users’ arm & elbow strength, and help prevent muscle shock. Research shows that Enerskin helps improve muscle strength, helping users do more push-ups, sit-ups and pull-ups. This makes them ideal gear for golf, baseball, volleyball, basketball, cross-fit, weight training, martial arts, boxing, track, cycling, windsurfing, kendo, fencing, water sports, tennis, bowling, and more.
