The ArmLock Sleeve
On a young person, you would not see a restriction in the flexibility of these muscles. Repeated stress, as we work and play, can cause these tissues to tighten up.
The ArmLock stretches the three muscles that attach to the outside of the elbow that causes Tennis Elbow.
- Extensor Carpi Radius Brevis
- Extensor Digitorium Communis
- Superficial head of the Supinator
It is recommended that you consult your Health Care Professional to confirm that your elbow pain is due to “Repetitive Strain” type Tennis Elbow.
The following conditions may be aggravated by the ArmLock:
- *Not for Acute Tennis Elbow
- Arthritis and/or joint instability of the fingers, wrist or elbow.
- Carpal Tunnel syndrome.
*Symptoms must have existed for two months or longer to allow for inflammation to settle prior to stretching. For athletes, use the brace during the off-season to help with ‘stretching out’ and healing the affected tissues.
A Stretch That Heals
Using the Armlock to Stretch the Ailing Muscle
The ArmLock device works by putting the muscles implicated in Tennis Elbow on a gentle, but prolonged stretch, essentially “pulling out” these tender areas. The stretch recommended is a half an hour a day. It may be a constant stretch, but several periods of 10 minutes work as well.
After one use of 20 minutes after an 8 hour shift (during which, due to the nature of ASL (American Sign Language) his wrists were often extended), he reported he was feeling much better. He rated his change in discomfort a 7/10 to a 1/10. During this trial and subsequently since, he took no pain meds or ice, and I didn’t do any massage or stretching. He used it again about a week later after another long 8 hour shift and he rated his pain reduction from a 6/10 to a 0/10.
My elbow has been very sore for a long time. I have been using the brace for a little over two weeks using a heat pad wrapped around my elbow for 25 minutes then put on the brace for twenty minutes. When I take the brace off it feels a little tight but then I wrap it again with the heat pad for another twenty-five minutes and it is pain free. This is an excellent product and I would recommend it to anyone with elbow pain similar to mine.
Desperate to find a solution to early retirement at the age of 33 I found Armlock and I’m so glad I did. 20-30 minutes of stretching a day have made my job and my social life care-free again. The brace is comfortable and easy to put on. Gives mommy twenty minutes of downtime after a long day to stretch out tight muscles and recharge for the next day. Within days I found relief. It feels so good to stretch out years of overwork on my arms.
GET RID OF YOUR TENNIS ELBOW
RESTORE THE MOBILITY OF YOUR TISSUES
Success hinges on three areas: improving access; reducing cost; and increasing convenience.
Improving Access: The brace is your therapist. You do not have to drive to a clinic to have your therapist do this, who also would only do it for a minute or two, and even then only if they are appropriately trained to do so.
Cost: The cost of one physical therapy treatment equates to the cost of the brace, but you can use the brace over and over again.
Convenience: You can do this at home, no need to drive to a physio clinic. Stretch right after supper to do your therapy, while watching TV.
