Regain confidence with a support that lets you train!
The upper arm consists of the biceps and triceps muscles. Both of these muscle groups are under extreme load during strengthening exercises at the gym and often bear the brunt of the work when lifting heavy objects. They are therefore prone to tears and strains, either in the muscle or at the tendons either end of the muscle.
In most cases when a tear occurs there will be a pain in the upper arm, with possible swelling and bruising. There may be associated weakness and discomfort when rotating the forearm from palm up to palm down. In some cases there can be a bulge or dent near to the site of injury.
Initial treatment involves ice therapy and rest for the first 72 hours. Surgery may be required for severe tears.
For effective rehabilitation or prevention of tears to the upper arm an Active650 bicep support provides outstanding comfort and protection, while allowing full expansion of the muscle mass. This means you can continue to strengthen your upper arm with more confidence.

Hold it if it Hurts!
Whether it’s a bump, a strain, a muscle tear or even a broken bone, what is the first thing you do when you hurt yourself?
You immediately grab hold of the bit that hurts. The management of the injury over the next hours, days and weeks may well differ but everyone’s initial reaction to pain is the same: clutch it, cradle it, hold it.
Why is this?
Quite simply, we don’t know. Theories range from affecting the pain receptors to providing a tourniquet-like effect for nerves and blood vessels to isolating the damaged structures and preventing further movement.
Whatever the reason is, we all do it.
Clearly, it would be impossible to spend all day holding your injury, which is why we at Active650 have come up with a range of super-comfortable supports that clutch, cradle and hold for you.
You get on with your life while Active 650 holds the bit that hurts!
