If you find that your elbow is hurting after every tennis training session, chances are you have some type of overuse injury or inflammation that is causing your pain and discomfort. If you have to keep training since you are an intense athlete or you have a big game coming up, what can you do? Without forfeiting the game or taking weeks off to recover, you need a therapy modality that can help you reduce pain, restore a full range of motion, and get you back on the court in no time. But what therapy modality should you use that is most effective for joint pain?
We recommend using cold therapy and compression therapy. Using cold therapy alone is one of the best ways to reduce inflammation and swelling – when combined with compression therapy, this modality is highly effective in treating joint pain, arthritis-related issues, chronic overuse issues, joint discomfort, range of motion hindrances, and many other common problems. Let’s learn more about one of the most popular cold therapy methods that are ideal for use on joints to help reduce pain!
How to use a breg polar care cube on joints – use for tennis elbow!
If you have tennis elbow after years of overuse – or after a few short months of overtraining preparing for an upcoming match – you should consider using a cold therapy and compression therapy modality to help reduce swelling and get yourself back out there in no time. But what cold therapy method should you use? If you have tried an ice pack and it is not doing the trick, and a cold tub is not targeting the affected area as you want, consider using a breg polar care cube for localized treatment.
A breg polar care cube is an easy-to-use, safe, and effective treatment method that works very well for smaller muscles and joints. By using compression and cold therapy via a portable unit, you can use this anywhere that you would like – all you have to do is bring the entire unit with you and you can use it while on the courtside, in the car, or while you are on the go. This makes it much more versatile and flexible when compared to the modalities, such as a game-ready ice machine or cold tub.
This simple and compact therapy method is one of the best ways that you can apply cold therapy and compression to the affected area by yourself – since this tool is very safe and easy to use, you don’t need the supervision of an athletic trainer to do this yourself! All you have to do is know the step of how to put it on and that’s it – you are done!
