This product was recommended to me by a pro, many years ago. I was having severe problems with wrist tendonitis (from using a trackball at the computer) that was compounded by playing a lot of tennis. At times the pain was so severe, I couldn't even turn on a faucet. I had gotten rid of the trackball months earlier, but I couldn't get the wrist issues to clear up. I started wearing this band almost 24/7 for a while, and the pain went away in a month or so - after I'd been dealing with it for a year or more.Since then, I've made the Tenex band part of my standard match gear. It's very comfortable. When I go without it, I can definitely tell a difference - mr arm will be more sore, sometimes even as far up as my shoulder. I have decent tennis technique, but I am just very extremely prone to inflammation from shock and vibration. That's why absorbing the shock as early as possible - at the racquet and the wrist, as opposed to at the elbow - is so important for me.Other tennis elbow tips that have helped me: use the heaviest racquet that you can comfortably play with while maintaining good technique (more mass absorbs more shock), use a looser string tension and an "arm friendly string" like natural gut or Wilson Sensation (avoid poly strings), and have a pro check out your technique (especially backhand) to see if that's the problem. I can't count how many times I've seen someone's swing and knew they had an elbow problem before I even saw their elbow band. But our own techniques can be very invisible to us, once they become second nature. Also, there are some good Theraband/Therabar excercises for TE and wrist issues.One more note about the Tenex band - it's quickly and easily washable with soap and water. I wash my hat and my Tenex out after every match or so, and attach it to the handle of my tennis bag. They last forever, but I believe it's possible to get replacement bands.
