I'm not a doctor but I pretend to be one in the sporting goods place where I work. (Academy) There are lots of people that come in looking for elbow sleeves for that particular pain and I show them the tennis elbow straps. I sell 2 types, McDavid and BCG. I find the cheaper BCG to be the better of the two. It has a single high point inside the band. I ask people to put their on where it hurts. That is where you put the high point and strap it down. In most instances the relief is immediate.
