elbow

what kind of brace would you recommend for my elbow?
I fractured my radius head about a month ago and my orthopaedic surgeon said that I needed a brace.
What do you recommend?

    Unless you need a brace for protection while the Fx heals, just a slip on neoprene sleeve can give comfortable support, compression and provide warmth. Once my patients have been taken out of a cast/sling, etc. by their Dr.’s they usually don’t need any type of bracing because this restricts mobility which is very important to regain in the elbow.
