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
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.
