elbow braces


looking for information on hyperextention of elbows for a child involved in competative gymnastics (girl)


  1. : i am a motocross rider and i broke my elbow 4 months ago . everytime i ride i am in terrible pain and a real bad aiking pain a couple of days later .hope you can help .

  2. I’m also a gymnast and I recommend not usuing an elbow brace unless it is a huge problem because it limits the motion in your elbow & it makes it weaker. I have too hyperextended my elbows before and i found out what works best is strengthening my arms,rest and ice and trying not to lock my elbows out as much as possible. If you want any more info from me feel free to ask
