Golfer's elbow? Elbow braces & elbow bandages

The wave elbow, also called wave arm, is a painful injury that can last for a long time. On average, 7 out of every 1000 people get a golfer's elbow. The risk of this injury is greatest for people in the 40 to 50 age group, namely 13 out of 1000.

Golfers in particular can suffer from a golfer's elbow during the swing due to the specific forces on these attachments, hence the name. After six months, 80% of the complaints have (almost) recovered and after a year 90%, with conservative treatment consisting of physiotherapy in combination with an elbow brace.

However, anyone can suffer from a golfer's elbow (not even golfers). The golfer's elbow is a condition where the inside of the elbow hurts, not the outside, as described with a tennis elbow . The pain can sometimes also be experienced in the forearm. How is a golf elbow recognized and what can be done about it?

What is a golfer's elbow?

Flexing the fingers and wrist is done by the muscles located on the inside of the forearm. As soon as there is a golfer's elbow, the muscles will feel sore. Small hairline cracks in the attachment of the flexor muscles of the wrist, which are attached to the elbow, often appear to be the cause of these pain complaints. There is inflammation in the flexor tendon of the forearm. This often arises from a chronic overload of the forearm muscles.

How does a wave arm form?

The wave arm is created by long-term tensioning and repeatedly performing the same movement, for example during sports. Due to straining or often an unexpected heavy performance, small hairline cracks will arise in the tendon, which will cause pain complaints.

Symptoms of a golfer's elbow

  • Pain on the inside of the elbow
  • Groaning and stabbing pain in the arm
  • Putting a powerful fist feels painful
  • Turning the elbow inwards is painful
  • Lifting heavy materials is sensitive and painful

An elbow brace or an elbow strap can be effective in reducing a golfer's arm complaints. For advice, please contact our customer service .

The elbow band exerts specific pressure on the tendon attachment. By applying pressure to the tendon attachment, the forces will decrease. Choose an elbow band:

  1. Golfer's elbow band : Thuasne Epi tennis elbow brace
  2. Or if you are looking for a brace that exerts even more specific pressure, look at the Thuasne Epi Med Epicondylus strap.

We can also offer an elbow brace. A brace will exert less specific pressure on the tendon attachment, but will provide more stability around the entire elbow. The best advised elbow brace for a golfer's elbow is:

  1. Bauerfeind Epi Train
  2. Or the cheaper version of this: the CARE Elbow Brace
