A ‘Tennis’ or ‘Golfer’s’ Elbow injury is usually the result of overuse and over extension of the elbow joint while playing racquet sports or golf.
In the event of a ‘tennis’ elbow, be sure to rest the elbow in a comfortable and safe position. Keep it close to the body and apply a cold Elastoplast Hot/Cold Pack to the affected area at regular intervals.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist contact your healthcare practitioner.
Correct and effective taping and strapping of soft tissue injuries can help to reduce pain and swelling. For more information on taping techniques, take a look at our dedicated article here.
Sports injuries can also be hard tissue injuries to their bones, such as a broken wrist or collarbone. If you suspect a fracture or break, see a qualified physician as soon as possible.
