Serola Gel Arc Elbow Brace
Pain occurs when the forearm muscles become tight and pull on their attachment to the epicondyle, which is a bony knob at the elbow; the medial epicondyle for the front of the forearm and the lateral epicondyle for the back of the forearm. Activity causes additional pull and continues the pain cycle. Relief is provided by placing a compressive barrier between the muscles and the epicondyle, effectively shifting the pull to the barrier. Taking the stress off the epicondyle helps prevent further injury and pain, and allows for more efficient healing.
In 1988, Dr. Serola discovered that patients’ strength increased after sacroiliac stabilization. After years of research, he developed a theory based on biomechanics and the kinematic chain. The underlying principles are the proprioceptive responses of flexion/extension within the cranio-sacral mechanism, the body’s innate system. Postural distortions accompany specific muscle imbalances. Back, hip, and leg pain and weakness often comes from instability at the sacroiliac joint, which is the center of the body’s structure. A distinct pattern appeared; including SI instability, increased lumbosacral angle and straightened A/P spinal curves.
For treatment, Dr. Serola developed unique orthopedic aids. Serola Biomechanics was developed in 1989 to market these products. After several years of research, he reasoned that a properly made belt could play a key role in stabilizing the sacroiliac joint, helping the muscles become stronger, more relaxed and less painful. He tested every belt that he could find but was unsuccessful, so he developed his own belt based on his discovery.
Now, the Serola Sacroiliac belt is being used to provide pain relief and help prevent injury to thousands of new people every month throughout the world. Serola Biomechanics started with Thoratrac and went on to develop Sacrotrac, the Serola Sacroiliac Belt, Inflatable Pelvic Blocks and the Serola Gel Arc Elbow Brace. Thoratrac and Sacrotrac have each earned Dr. Serola a listing in “Who’s Who of American Inventors.”
