Elbow braces are devices that fit around and support the elbow joint to help correct injuries or pain in the elbow, shoulder, or wrist. They may be adjustable, but most braces are intended to snugly encircle the arm. Elbow Braces can be used by any person who has a painful injury in their arm. They can also be used for temporary relief of back pain due to an injury on one's spine. Elbow braces come in a variety of styles and sizes that are customized to the individual's needs. The elbow brace supports the area above and below the elbow joint so that the arm can move freely. It also stabilizes the joint to protect it from shocks and injuries. In order for an elbow brace to work properly, it must be customized for each individual's needs, essentially a customized brace just for him or her.
