If you are suffering from Elbow and Forearm problems including: Sprains, Tendonitis and Pain then Doctor Fareed recommends the ProBand® Bandit and ProBand® Bandit XM (magnetic). Used correctly, these ProBand®s may assist in the healing and prevention of Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSIs).

Injury Specific Information

Injury Name: Carpal tunnel syndrome

Injury Description

Numbness, tingling and weakness in the thumb, index and middle fingers of the hand traditionally have been associated with median nerve compression in the wrist. Numbness of the thumb, index and middle fingers, weakness, night pain and progressive muscle atrophy are symptomatic of this condition. Seen in many occupations including keyboard and mouse operators, graphic artists, web designers, court reporters, accountants, office workers and people who perform repetitive manual activities including bartenders, waiters, writers, dental hygienists, mothers, athletes, truck drivers, fishermen, assemblers, carpenters, plumbers, horseback riders, and musicians. Imprecise understanding of the origin of this problem led to the designation syndrome. A syndrome implies a description based on symptoms and complaints rather than an etiologic origin of the problem. Carpal tunnel syndrome traditionally has been thought to be related to median nerve compression in the wrist.

How Do the ProBand® Products Help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

The characteristic unique patented dual anatomic plate design of the ProBand® BandIt works by simultaneously harnessing the rhythmic expansion and contraction of the flexor and extensor muscles in the forearm. Under normal circumstances, muscles and soft tissues in the forearm receive oxygen, fluids and nutrients pumped in under high pressure from the heart. Outflow in the arm largely is passive. Functioning arm muscles act like small chemical factories. After they utilize blood oxygen and nutrients, muscles produce metabolic waste products that can languish in the forearm like waste chemicals dumped into a swamp. Hand movement, the only active outflow pump for the forearm, is limited due to the fact that it is at the end of the line. We believe that the effectiveness of the ProBand® BandIt is based on the principle of simultaneous focused Anatomic Dynamic Compression®. Utilizing Newton’s second law, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, focused dynamic anatomic compression works equally as a shock absorber for muscle contraction and for dynamic outflow augmentation. Unlike a splint that immobilizes the arm, strap or wrap that is a tournequette, the ProBand® BandIt utilizes anatomically focused dynamic compression® to harness normal muscle function, gently relieve pain, inflammation and improve arm function.

Injury Name: Lateral epicondylitis

Related Injuries

Tennis elbow, golfers elbow, bowlers elbow, extensor tendinitis, radial tenosynovitis, elbow strain, repetitive stress injury, capsulitis, arthritis, chronic elbow strain/sprain.

Injury Description

This condition, a syndrome described diagnosis, is based on the complaint of pain along the lateral aspect of the elbow that involves the bony attachment of the extensor muscles at the elbow. X-rays and other studies frequently are negative. The incapacity is related to localized pain along the lateral and anterior aspect of the elbow and forearm. The problem frequently is noticed while reaching and twisting with the elbow and forearm, activities such as serving a tennis ball, performing dental hygiene, twisting a screwdriver, hammering a nail, or throwing a bag on the overhead luggage compartment of a plane can precipitate and elicit the complaints.

The unique, patented dual plate characteristic design of the ProBand® BandIt works as a shock absorber by simultaneously harnessing the rhythmic expansion and contraction of the flexor and extensor muscles in the forearm. We believe the effectiveness of the ProBand® BandIt is based on the principle of simultaneous Anatomically Focused Dynamic Compression. Utilizing Newton’s second law, focused Anatomic Dynamic Compression® works as a dynamic shock absorber for muscle contraction at the elbow and dynamic fluid outflow augmentation. Unlike a splint that immobilizes the arm, strap or wrap that is nonspecific, a tournequette, and may intensify waste fluid retention, the ProBand® BandIt utilizes Anatomically Focused Dynamic Compression to harness normal muscle function, absorb the shock of muscle contraction, gently relieve pain, inflammation and improve function.

Injury Name: Medial epicondylitis

Related Injuries

Golfers elbow, bowlers elbow, flexor tendinitis, ulnar tenosynovitis, elbow strain, repetitive stress injury, capsulitis, arthritis, chronic elbow strain/sprain.

Injury Description

This condition, a syndrome based diagnosis, is based on the complaint of pain along the medial aspect of the elbow that involves the bony attachment of the flexor muscles at the elbow. X-rays and other studies usually are negative. The incapacity is related to localized pain and inflammation along the inner aspect of the elbow and forearm. The problem frequently is noticed while reaching and twisting with the elbow and forearm. Activities such as performing dental hygiene, twisting a screwdriver, hitting a golf ball, a topspin backhand, hammering a nail, or throwing a bag onto an overhead luggage compartment of a plane can elicit the complaints.

How Do the ProBand Products Help with Medial Epycondylitis?

The characteristic unique patented dual plate characteristic design of the ProBand BandIt works by simultaneously harnessing the rhythmic expansion and contraction of the flexor and extensor muscles in the forearm. Under normal circumstances, muscles and soft tissues in the forearm receive oxygen, fluids and nutrients pumped in under high pressure from the heart. Outflow circulation is passive, mostly dependent on hand motion and arm position with respect to the heart. Functioning arm muscles act like small chemical factories. After they utilize blood oxygen and nutrients, they produce metabolic waste products that can languish in the forearm like waste chemicals left in a swamp. We believe that a significant amount of non-physiologic chronic inflammation is the result of interstitial fluid stagnation. Hand movement, the only active outflow pump for the forearm, is limited due to the fact that it is at the end of the line. We believe the effectiveness of the ProBand BandIt results from the principle of simultaneous focused dynamic anatomic compression. Utilizing Newton’s second law, focused dynamic anatomic compression works as a dynamic shock absorber for muscle contraction at the elbow and dynamic fluid outflow augmentation. Unlike a splint that immobilizes the arm, strap or wrap that may intensify waste fluid retention, the ProBand BandIt utilizes anatomically focused dynamic compression to harness normal muscle function, gently relieve pain, inflammation and improve function. Chronic arm pain, repetitive strain, tendinitis: a common contribution to all of these conditions is inflammation.
