A tendon is a tough yet flexible band of fibrous tissue. The tendon is the structure in your body that connects your muscles to the bones. The skeletal muscles in your body are responsible for moving your bones, thus enabling you to walk, jump, lift, and move in many ways. When a muscle contracts it pulls on a bone to cause movements. The structure that transmits the force of the muscle contraction to the bone is called a tendon.
Tendons come in many shapes and sizes. Some are very small, like the ones that cause movements of your fingers, and some are much larger, such as your Achilles tendon in your heel. When functioning normally, these tendons glideeasily and smoothly as the muscle contracts.
Sometimes the tendons become inflamed for a variety of reasons, and the action of pulling the muscle becomes irritating. If the normal smooth gliding motion of your tendon is impaired, the tendon will become inflamed and movement will become painful. This is called tendonitis, and literally means inflammation of the tendon.
Our Magnetic Tennis Elbow Band or Golf Elbow Band is used on the muscle and tendon around the outside or the inside of the elbow. "Tennis Elbow" is a common term for a condition caused by overuse of arm and forearm muscles that results in elbow pain. You don't have to play tennis to get this, but the term came into use because it can be a significant problem for some tennis players. Our magnetic Tennis Elbow Band targets compression to the long tendons of the forearm extensor and flexor muscles. Our magnetic wrap offers compression along with magnetic therapy.
Tennis elbow is caused by either abrupt or subtle injury of the muscle and tendon area around the outside of the elbow. Tennis elbow specifically involves the area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attach to the outside bony area (called the epicondyle) of the elbow. Your doctor may call this condition lateral epicondylitis. Another common term, "golfers elbow," refers to the same process occurring on the inside of the elbow- what your doctor may call medial epicondylitis. Overuse injury can also affect the back or posterior part of the elbow as well.
The most common symptom of tennis elbow is pain slowly increasing around the outside of the elbow and pain is usually worse when shaking hands or squeezing objects. Pain is made worse by stabilizing or moving the wrist with force. Examples include lifting, using tools, or even handling simple utensils.
