DARIEN - This week, News 12 Connecticut's What's Ailing You looks at tennis elbow.

Another product that may help is "tennis elbow bands," which are sold at local pharmacies. The bands put pressure just below the elbow to take stress off the attachment where the muscle comes into the elbow, reducing symptoms.
