Best Elbow Braces For Netball

HOW AM I ABLE TO PREVENT OR AVOID AN ELBOW INJURY WHEN I PLAY NETBALL?

Catching, throwing and shooting the netball at speed means that elbows can get overworked. Common elbow injuries netballers suffer include tendinitis, sprains and strains. A Bauerfeind elbow brace and support protects and helps with treatment through the provision of enhanced stability, proprioception (2) and medical-grade compression.

Bauerfeind elbow braces also help to promote blood flow with the use of our 3D weaved medical grade compression, something not found when using simple neoprene sleeves and braces. A good elbow support for netball is the EpiPoint, which supports and relieves elbow pain. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to chest pass, lob and score a point.

HOW TO TREAT A NETBALL ELBOW INJURY

We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common netball injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.
  • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A good physiotherapist can assist with the recovery however prevention is always better than cure.
  • Tendinitis. Rarely does this condition require surgery. It can generally be treated using a combination of anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen) and exercise. A corticosteroid injection may also be used.
  • Stress Fractures. Consult a sports medicine doctor X-rays. Recommended treatments include rest, anti-inflammatory medication, stretching, and muscle strengthening exercise. Stress fractures take about six weeks to heal.
