Tennis Elbow Treatment Discovery

There is a new type of arm brace you may see on the courts this year, made for treating that age old condition known as  tennis elbow. The SUPER Tennis Elbow Brace was created by Dr. Leland Dao, a Family and Sports Medicine Physician in Hawaii, specifically for use with this ever so common condition.  Known medically as lateral epicondylitis or lateral epicondylar tendinopathy, and contrary to the name, tennis elbow not only affects tennis players who have that bad backhand stroke, it is more commonly found in those individuals who do repetitive manual activities such as mechanics, weightlifters, and computer users among others.  Interestingly, Tennis elbow is found in one to two percent of the entire population, and seven out of every 1,000-doctor visits are estimated to be for evaluating tennis elbow pain.  

The impetus for creating this product was the recognition of a need for a new approach to managing this condition.  Dao knew that other treatments for tennis elbow were not effective.  As a sufferer of the condition himself, he sought after a better treatment.  After researching and reviewing the basic anatomic structures and positions of the elbow and forearm, Dr. Dao came up with the unique idea of a brace that uses a spiraling tension band to supinate the forearm (holding the palm forward or up).  The potential to help all tennis elbow sufferers was recognized, and thus, the SUPER Tennis Elbow Brace was born, with the vision if being worn on every nagging, tennis elbow arm in the world.  This stylish design looks very attractive, and is very comfortable to wear.

The SUPer Tennis Elbow Brace is  patent pending,  with a one-size fits all design, treating both right and left handed injuries.  Best yet, they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
