    Posted: 07/21/2022 at 10:54am
There are so many types of knee & elbow baces / supports etc & I am lost.

I do not have any problems per se but due to age I feel diffculty when getting up from sitting etc.

I am looking for preventive type of knww brace or support or whatever you call it.

I play mostly mid distance about 1200-1300 rating 

As far a as elbow  I have no problem either except it hurts below my elbow a little if I backhand loop a lot. (It doe snot hurt with forehand loops

I have no idea what a tennis elbow is and is it pain at the elbow itself or does it include below & above elbow ?  

I even sometimes wonder if people are making up stuff about having  tennis elbow to be fashionable 

Also should I wear an ankle support ?

What are your recommendations.  Are compression type support the best ?
I also see many pro players wear small bands or brace or support whatever,  below and above the knee or elbow.  Is it better than compression type ?

Again all my questions are for preventive action due to age and proactive & not reactive (no existing major issue) 

TIA

Bump for the elbow question. I have never used this, but am having some mild "table tennis" elbow...

I ordered a pair of compression type knee support on Ebay for about $10
I think elbow support is the same. I alrerady have this 

I still wonder why most pros wear the one below

I am not a doctor but curious what they recommend

An elbow suggestion might be something like this below?. I've seen a few of the players I know wear something similar with a kind of compression sleeve type thing.

I can only find these sites in Europe.



Not sure if that might point you in the right direction as a start?

Cheers

My guess (also not a doctor) is that this type of knee brace supports the knee when you have an issue with ACL or LCL weakness or tears. So a player with an injured ACL or LCL might choose this type of brace.  There may be other reasons to use this I'm not aware of.
