Hi everyone.

Some time ago I experienced soreness in my inner part of the elbow, particularly doing heavy FH topspin when making full swing or when punching the over the net ball with my backhand and fully extending my arm. It was a dull pain that lasted for some 10 minutes or so.. Stopped playing, went to the physician and got diagnosed with golfers elbow (if I had the pain on the outside part of the elbow, then it would be tennis elbow...). So had to stop playing for some time, had to do special exercises and stretches. So now my elbow is somewhat ok, don't feel anything for most of the time, but occasionally there is some mild pain after having longer sessions. 

Is such a problem common? How are you dealing with it? Did you manage to get rid of it completely or does is bother you from time to time? 

Every time I'm playing doctor recommends using special elbow support for decreasing the pressure on tendon and now I am on the quest to find the best one. Now I have 3 of them:

1. neoprene (like ) -pluses are that you can adjust the pressure on your elbow, but it cuts the bloodflow and its hard to bend your forearm...
2. padded (like ) -good pressure because of the padding, but slips off and also has a tendency to twist at the part where velcro goes through the buckle
3. compression sleeve ( ) - the most comfortable, but pressure is rather weak, have to roll it up twice to increase it, but still remains the lowest of the 3. 

So did anyone find the perfect support and could share it?

Perfect? I've used both neoprene support and gel pad

The gel pad was the one that worked best for me.
