Protecting the wrists during sports and exercise activities by wearing supportive wrist supports can prevent and treat tennis and golfers elbow as well as tendonitis according to the Johns Hopkins Health System.

Zensah®, the leader in compression technology and sports medicine, has expanded their product offering to include a wrist support. The wrist support features an adjustable velcro strap and provides stability to the wrist area.
Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis, more commonly referred to as tennis elbow and golfers elbow, is a condition in which there is inflammation of the tendons attached to the outside of the elbow. Although this may seem unrelated to wrist pain, the muscles that work the wrist and fingers turn into a tendon that attaches to the elbow area, and as a result, patients with tennis and golfers elbow not only experience pain on the outside of the elbow, but also in the forearm and often the wrist.
Wrist tendonitis in itself, caused by any activity that involves repetitive wrist motion — from hitting a tennis ball to driving cross-country — can inflame the tissues around the wrist or cause stress fractures, especially when you perform the movement for hours on end without a break. Protecting the wrists during sports and exercise activities by wearing supportive wrist supports can prevent and treat tennis and golfers elbow as well as tendonitis according to the Johns Hopkins Health System.
Designed to help relieve stress associated with repetitive strain and overuse injuries, the Zensah Wrist Support is ideal for tennis, free weights, fitness activities, golf and any other activity requiring recurrent motions. The wrap features a layer of sweat resistant neoprene that is both tough enough to last through the most enduring workout, and lightweight and comfortable to never hinder your movement. The one-size wrist support comes with Velcro straps — which are engineered to never cut-in to the skin — to assure users that they will receive exactly the right amount of compression they desire. And unlike most Wrist Supports available, the Zensah Wrist Support was designed with ease of use in mind: it does not have a thumb loop that itches when tucked in, but rather a sturdy buckle that ensures an “easy-on”.
