Tennis players are prone to several overuse injuries; one, in particular, is tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is inflammation of the elbow due to repetitive movement and impedes movement of your wrist and hand. Our hand-picked Incrediwear products will help you prevent overuse injuries or, if you encounter one, allow you to recover quickly.
What are some common issues tennis players encounter, and how can Incrediwear help combat and resolve those issues?
What Is Tennis Elbow?
This term describes general overuse of the arm, resulting in inflammation of the tendons and muscles surrounding the elbow. It is very common amongst tennis players due to the volume of strokes they produce day after day.
Incrediwear Elbow Sleeve
The Elbow Sleeve we offer can greatly help with this condition. It covers from mid-bicep to mid-forearm, comes in various colors, and is fully flexible.
Why Do Tennis Players Have Wrist Issues?
Many players opt to hold the racket with a “laid-back” grip. This is to achieve the advantage of putting heavy topspin on the ball; however, it can also lead to wrist problems.
Incrediwear Wrist Sleeve
Our Wrist Sleeve fits snugly over the wrist and is perfect for fighting discomfort and inflammation. It can be worn underneath long sleeves in colder weather and with short sleeves in the summer. You also have a choice of color between black or gray, whatever your style may be.
How Do Tennis Players Strain Their Knees?
A key characteristic of top tennis players is the ability to stop on a dime and change directions in a split second — all in preparation for your opponent's return. Because of this, players often deal with issues in the front of the knee (anterior). The “spring-up” motion on serves can also lead to knee pain.
Incrediwear Knee Sleeve
The Knee Sleeve is low profile and extremely effective. You can wear it with shorts or underneath pants — it does not limit your range of motion. Slide it over your leg to relieve pain and accelerate recovery.
Rotator Cuff Tendinitis
What Is This Condition?
The tendons that attach the shoulder blade to the upper arm can become inflamed. The rotator cuff gives your shoulder its multi-directional mobility, and irritation is common among tennis players due to repeated overhand serving.
Incrediwear Shoulder Brace
The Incrediwear Shoulder Brace is a great option if you’re experiencing any pain in the shoulder area. It covers from the blade down to the bicep and straps around the side opposite the affected shoulder without interfering with your mobility.
How Does Tennis Cause Back Pain?
When tennis players serve, they can arch their backs at a pretty extreme angle. They do this to produce as much power as possible on the stroke. This motion, especially over many years, puts a lot of stress on the tissues and joints within the spine.
Incrediwear Body Sleeve
Our body sleeve is the way to go if you’re dealing with any core or back-related issues from playing tennis. It’s slipped on over your mid area and can be adjusted to cover the target area on your back. You won’t feel constricted either — it’s super flexible and breathable and can be worn underneath clothing.
