To use an elbow brace, follow these steps:
- Place the elbow brace around your arm so that the padded section is over your elbow joint.
- Adjust the straps on the brace so that it is snug, but not too tight. The brace should be snug enough to provide support, but not so tight that it restricts movement or circulation.
- Fasten the straps according to the instructions on the brace. Some braces may have Velcro straps, while others may have buckles or other fastening mechanisms.
- Once the brace is in place, adjust the position of the padding to ensure that it is covering the elbow joint properly.
To remove the brace, unfasten the straps and carefully slide the brace off your arm
It is important to follow the instructions provided with your elbow brace and to use the brace as directed by your doctor or physical therapist. Overuse or improper use of an elbow brace can cause additional injuries or complications.
