Why are non-flat counterforce braces supposed to work, when used for a lateral or medial epicondylopathy?
I heard the following reasons:
- they increase the blood circulation
- they provide active release
- they decrease the pressure that is put on the damaged part of the tendon, when flexor/extensor muscles are used
Which one(s) are correct,and is there any more reason why they would work?
By non-flat, I mean it has a bump, as illustrated below (image taken from https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00QY0EFJM/):
