Treatment of tennis elbow often involves rest and immobilization of the arm. A brace may also be beneficial primarily because it prohibits use of the elbow.

Health Tip of the Day

Baby Walker Alternatives

Although baby walkers may seem like a good idea, the American Academy of Pediatrics says they are never safe to use. Most injuries caused by walkers occur while adults are watching, because a child in a walker can move so quickly. Instead of a walker, try one of these safer alternatives:

  • Stationary walkers rotate, tip and bounce, but have no wheels, so the child remains in one spot.

  • Playpens offer a safe spot for a child to learn to sit, crawl or walk.

  • High chairs give an older youngster a fun place to play with toys.
