I've bought about a dozen elbow straps over the past several weeks and very few have been up to par (pun somewhat intended for you medial/golfer's elbow types). In my opinion, the best straps I've come across are Mueller Hg80 and Bracoo Tennis/Golf Elbow Strap with EVA Pad. Mueller has a sleek look if you like the Harley Davidson thing and Bracoo looks like somebody glue-gunned a piece of foam to elastic, but the elbow pain is severe enough that I wouldn't care if they were covered in Spongebob fabric so long as they WORK. The fact is that they're slim, have low profiles (for elbow straps that is, at least), don't slip much (so long as you put them at the exact right tension), and put a good amount of pressure where I need it.
As you can tell, I'm not the biggest fan of these monstrosities. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why the majority of elbow straps are freakishly huge and thick when all you need is a small area of pressure, but whatever. They're better than nothing.
Update:11/16 I recently bought a 2nd one for my other elbow and the first one is so durable and well made that even after many months of daily use I can't easily distinguish between the new and old one. Love em!
I tried it on and it did nothing for me, BUT that could have been it was to small.
Tried to return it and was not allowed to because it's a hygiene product. Was told by Amazon it stated so on site. IT DOES NOT! At least as far as I know. I looked everywhere on the site and can not find it! Of course, maybe I'm just missing it!
The Mueller Tennis Elbow Support, Black, One Size works great for me. I love it. But a lot of people seem to like McDavid. For half the price the Mueller is better for me. It is bulky and about two inches wide. It works.
For Elbow Support try wrist support. It takes the pain and pressure off the elbow. Works better or at least the same as elbow support. Don't know why this is but my doctor told me to wear wrist support instead of elbow support. I use both depending on what I'm doing.
Personal note: Amazon is awesome! Amazon gave me a full refund on the McDavid product anyway! That's why it's Amazon and Costco for me. I will be more careful when buying at Amazon from now on. Nevertheless, If you can't return a product it should say so on the site in BOLD AND EASY TO READ PRINT.
