Elbow injuries are painful, and it can be difficult to immobilize the joint properly to promote healing. Elite Medical Supply’s elbow braces may look complicated, but they’re easy to use and they keep your elbow joint in the optimal position to prevent further injury and speed healing.
When you have an elbow injury, the last thing you want to have to worry about is whether to spend the money on an elbow brace. Luckily, Medicare often covers the cost of elbow braces, as well as knee braces and back braces. If you’re not sure if your Medicare plan covers elbow braces, give us a call at Elite Medical Supply and we will find out for you.

Pain in the elbow can be the result of an accident such as a fall or car crash, or an injury from playing sports, such as with tennis elbow. Diagnoses include fracture, dislocation, ligament injuries, ruptured tendons and cubital tunnel syndrome.
To promote healing of an elbow injury, the elbow must be immobilized at precisely the angle necessary as it relates to the injury and the patient’s individual anatomy. That’s why the elbow brace may at first look complicated, but once you have the correct angle set, all you need to do is put it on and take it off every day.
Wearing an elbow brace is much less trouble than a cast, and it works infinitely better than a compression sleeve.
