WHY SHOULD I WEAR AN ELBOW BRACE WHEN I PLAY BASKETBALL?
Dribbling, passing, catching, and shooting the basketball means that the elbows can get overworked during a basketball game.
Common elbow injuries found in basketballers include tendinitis, bursitis, sprains and strains.
A Bauerfeind elbow brace and support both protects and helps with the treatment through the provision of enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression.
Bauerfeind elbow braces also help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weaved medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces.

ARE ELBOW INJURIES COMMON IN BASKETBALL?
Basketball involves repetitive use of your elbow and forearms, potentially leading to overstrain and muscle or tendon injuries. Ensure you strengthen the muscles of your arm and complete flexibility exercises.
HOW TO TREAT A BASKETBALL ELBOW INJURYWe recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common AFL injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.
- Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
- Tendinitis. Rarely does this condition require surgery. It can generally be treated using a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. A corticosteroid injection may also be used.
- Bursitis. Anti-inflammatory medications or cortisone injections may be recommended to help with pain and swelling. If surgery is requires, the entire bursa may be removed; it will usually grow back over the course of several months and function normally.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent tendonitis pain.
