Sport injury in tennis

Tennis is a specialized sport. It takes a lot of time to learn how to grip the racket and hit the basic tennis strokes: the forehand, backhand, serve, volley, lob, and overhead. Each skill requires muscular coordination and almost all occur around the upper extremity. Repetitive hitting, incorrect gripping and fatigue can cause extra stress on the extensor tendon and may result in tendonitis. The famous elbow injury is Tennis Elbow which is often caused by overuse, repetitive strain and bending back (extension) of the wrist against resistance. Using the Elbow Support, LP 751CA, to wrap around the forearm and take pressure off the muscle attachments helps prevent progressive injury by sharing loading of the muscle. The additional pad placed over the muscles belly provides a targeted, intermittent compression to improve muscle coordination and relieve pain at the lateral epicondyles. Wear it as a short term measure to aid recovery and protect against injury.
