Playing sports such as tennis or golf for long periods of time can lead to repetitive strain injury. This can be very painful and it can prevent you from staying active. Boots supports for repetitive strain can help you protect yourself during exercise and recover more quickly.
Repetitive strain injury of the elbow affects the tendons which run down the forearm. Boots Sport Tennis Elbow Support provides targeted compression to the area of weakness which reduces pain and swelling. It alleviates the excessive forces applied to tendons during exercise and limits any shock or vibrations which can damage the tendons.
The support has been designed with adjustable fasteners to ensure a customised fit for most body types. It is also reversible for right and left elbows.

How to use
This support is suitable for elbow dimensions of 22cm - 38cm (8½ - 15 inches). This is the measurement around the forearm, adjacent to the elbow.
Locate the area of pain on the forearm by probing gently with the fingertips.
Place the padded area of the support centrally over this area of pain.
Close the fastener, adjusting the tightness so that the pad applies a noticeable pressure to the forearm.
Adjust the tightness over time as required.
