Because this inflammation may persist in this condition, it is not uncommon for the cellular makeup of the tendon to change. Instead of having healthy, organized tissue, the cells in the tendon become disorganized and lose their flexibility along with the ability to handle stresses produced with normal muscle contraction.
This condition, called tendinosis, responds best to anatomically appropriate muscle contractions and is worsened by compression. The Tendon Trak™ is the ONLY DEVICE AVAILABLE which does not apply pressure or alter negatively the muscle contraction.
Developed by a Physical Therapist and unlike other counterforce braces, the Tendon Trak ™ uses two approximating pads placed on opposite sides of the irritated tissue providing a “trak” for the tendon/muscle to contract normally through.
This Patented method of support is in line with clinical reasoning as it DOES NOT apply pressure to the irritated tissue in addition to increasing movement efficiency. This method of support results in a decrease in pain allowing for improved function and ultimately tissue healing. The Tendon Trak™ Elbow will fit ANY elbow, left or right.
