    This brace has changed my life!!

    I received the Bort EpiPlus Lateral & Medial Epicondylitis Treatment Elbow Brace in May. Until then, I have not been able to play competitive tennis (I could only play about an hour a week with pain). I had surgery in March 2012 on my lateral epicondyle (full thickness tear) and surgery December 2014 on my medial epicondyle. The medial surgery has been very difficult to recover from and I truly thought I would never be pain free again… HOWEVER, this brace has changed my life!! Within one month of wearing it, I am pain free not only day to day but also while I play tennis! WooHoo! Thank you so much! It is such a great product that now I’m online looking for an ankle brace for my husband who has chronic tendonitis in his achilles.

    Working well for my epicondylitis

    I developed golfers elbow from doing large numbers of endoscopic procedures on a daily basis. I have started wearing this throughout my heavy procedure days and it does a great job in reducing the pain and numbness associated with a medial epicondylitis. It’s very well-made, has developed no fraying despite heavy use and washes easily. It seems to run a bit small so I would definitely get a larger size if you’re on the cusp between two sizes based on your elbow diameter measurements. It will still provide adequate compression even if a bit large size.

    I’m in the final phases

    I’m in the final phases (hopefully) of recovery from medial epicondylitis in my left elbow. I thought my experience might help others who develop a similar injury.The problem began with the opening of the first dedicated climbing wall in Aberdeen The 11 metre RGU wall. Prior to this I’d trained exclusively on bouldering walls or by climbing outdoors. Although I’ve had an assortment of muscle tweaks I’d never suffered a serious tendon injury due to training. Needless to say my warmup routine consisted of chalking up and starting to climb. Over a period of several months I’d raised my grade and was aiming for F7a. I noticed that my elbows had started to hurt when I climbed, but the pain always vanished after I’d done a few routes. It wasn’t a sharp pain, more of a background level, but it was becoming noticeable. I put it down to regular and harder training so wasn’t too concerned. However, I was climbing a route on an overhanging section of the wall last October, my left arm locked off on a small crimp, and a 90 degree bend at the elbow. Suddenly I felt a very sharp pain in the elbow, all the strength drained from my fingers and forearm and I fell off. After resting for 10 minutes the pain had subsided so I started climbing again, but on easier routes. I returned a week later thinking a week off would have allowed the injury to heal. Although I didn’t have the acute pain any more, I had very little lock-off strength in my left arm and didn’t feel confident loading it. After a couple of weeks I decided complete rest was the best option.I stopped all climbing for 6 weeks, but I didn’t go to a doctor or physio, thinking this was plenty of time for the injury to heal. The first session back seemed alright, climbing only up to 6a. Again I limited training to once a week but after the 3rd visit the pain had returned to my elbow and it felt very weak again. After doing a little reading on golfer’s and tennis elbow I decided to take a 2 month layoff before returning, again not consulting with a doctor or physio. This time I limited my climbing to 5+ grades, and again after a few sessions the pain had returned. If anything it seemed worse! Finally, I relented and sought the advice of a sports physiotherapist.After a very painful physio session I learned I’d torn the tendon in my elbow. The tear was made almost inevitable by the fact that I’d been stressing the tendon over a long period but ignored the tell-tale background pain. There was a large build-up of scar tissue preventing the tear from healing properly. I’ve had 9 physio sessions, consisting of direct and forceful massage of the lump of scar tissue to break it down (this really hurt!), followed by ultrasound and laser treatment to promote blood-flow in the tendon. My therapist ordered this brace for me to wear for support! I’ve also been following a stretching and icing regime every day. I’ve started bouldering again, in a progressive fashion, gradually building up the grade. The elbow is starting to feel strong again and I’m looking forward to a good Summer.Lessons Learned1. Warmup and stretch properly before every climbing session.2. Develop the antagonistic muscles as well as developing your climbing muscles.3. Use an open hand grip as much as possible, crimping only where you have to.4. If you start to experience constant background pain during/after climbing seek medical advice.5. If you experience acute pain stop climbing immediately. Use a good & proper support, Ice the affected area as soon as possible to prevent swelling and seek medical advice.6. A planned recovery programme is essential, with the help of a physio if required.7. Unlike me, don’t assume you know best! You might prevent an injury in the first place, and certainly reduce your recovery time substantially. Thank you for being a part of my healing!
