As a result of problems in the elbow, the nearest muscles and tendons associated with the fingers not only move during the playing , but also jump, and whole elbow area along with them; which leads to the impossibility of absolute control over the fingers. Colleague - drummer advised to use Tennis Elbow bandage , which really significantly reduces the “chewing” muscle movements .
I would like to hear on this occasion the opinions of professional pianists - teachers of classical music - pro & contra.

I have one for my tennis elbow but I can't tell if it does anything or not. So I will be watching this thread with interest!

I used one briefly, but my arm is really too skinny for it to work properly. I haven't seen them for sale in kids sizes.

If you're doing lots of finger work (Mozart) it will reduce the chance of tennis elbow.

When a key descends the opposite also tries to happen (the wrist tries to go up). To stop this the wrist extensor (attached to the elbow) must engage - the same muscle that is damaged in tennis elbow.

This will not happen if the leading pilot of the movement of the whole arm will be not at the tip of the fingers, but at the point of the base of the palm, as is also the case in the technique of playing African drums, which lasts several thousand years. They know something about adapting body anatomy to the playing process ...

You can't fight the laws of levers. The wrist is forced up.
