Inflatable air chambers with self-contained aspirator. Soft foam padded shell with pocket for air chamber.

The TOURELBOW is a unique device which allows you to apply compression to the extensor muscles of the forearm.

The inflatable chambered air system provides concentrated compression to a large area. The separate air chambers provide excellent conformation to the arm dampening vibration and shock usually transmitted to the lateral epicondyle tendon.

The TOURELBOW helps to reduce tendon inflammation where muscle and tendon connect to elbow. It protects from vibration and shock transmitted to the lateral tendon. Designed to support the upper forearm during many activities involving repeated hand motion, specially those requiring a strong grip, torquing of the arm, and those where impact occurs with a tennis racket, or a golf club.

About Golfer's Elbow
Golfer's elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is similar to its counterpart Tennis Elbow. The primary differences between these conditions are the location of the pain and the activity that leads to injury. However, both conditions are caused by overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, leading to inflammation and pain around the elbow joint.

What is golfers elbow?
These problems, tennis elbow and golfer's elbow, are both forms of tendonitis. Tendons are the ends of muscles that attach to bone. Because of the force of the muscle, the points of insertion of the tendon on the bone are often pointed prominences. The medical names of Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) and Golfer's Elbow (medial epicondylitis) come from the names of these bony prominences where the tendons insert, and where the inflammation causes the pain. The pain of golfer's elbow is usually at the elbow joint on the inside of the arm; a shooting sensation down the forearm is also common while gripping objects.

What causes golfers elbow?
The mechanism of this injury can vary from a single violent action to, more commonly, repetitive strain injury where an action is performed repeatedly and pain gradually develops. No one is immune from these injuries, but they are most common at the beginning of the golf season, or when the offending activity is increased in intensity or duration. Golf is one common cause of these symptoms, but many other sport- and work-related activities can cause the same problem. Another common cause of this injury is with weekend carpenters who use hand tools on occasion.

What is the treatment of golfer's elbow?
Golfer's elbow is usually a self-limited problem, and does not cause any long-term disability. Treatment is rarely surgical, as this condition is well managed with a little rest and proper rehabilitation. Often a change in technique can resolve the problem. Doctors may prescribe mild anti-inflammatory or pain medication. Some simple stretches and exercises can also be helpful in controlling the symptoms of golfer's elbow. By strengthening the muscles and tendons involved with golfers' elbow, you can help prevent the problem from returning. Use of elbow support to apply compression to the extensor muscles of the forearm may help to alleviate the symptoms and discomfort caused by golfer's elbow.
