How to Wear a Tennis Elbow Clasp
Locate the tender spot on the forearm.
Measure 10cm down from where the pain and tenderness occurs.
Place the clasp/brace on this area with the compression pad/velcro strap – depending on the type of clasp used – resting on the tender spot.
Have the brace firm on the arm but not tight. It should reinforce the lateral muscles without cutting off the circulation.
