Question by thisisthelamestnameicouldfind:
should i wear a tennis elbow brace in the course of my workout even though i do not feel any pain?
I developed tennis elbow via boxing. I would like to return to the activity (I have not done it in a week). I do not really feel discomfort, so would it be a waste to purchase elbow braces?

As the injury was only a week ago, I would use the braces for a number of weeks and see how it feels.
Don’t turn into reliant on the braces – braces can really make you weaker. If there is an underlying difficulty that wants treatment, ask your physician for a referal to a great physical therapist.
Tennis elbow troubles, in my encounter, can be due to weak triceps. There is typically a lot of scar tissue due to microtrauma on the outer bone of the elbow, called the lateral epicondyle, or on the tendons that attach to that bone. A excellent physical therapist should be in a position to establish if any problems like that are present or if there are other troubles.
