Tony Elggren is no stranger to competitive sports.
The father of two is the head coach of a little league football team, participates in a variety of outdoor activities, and even served as a torchbearer for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. So when he heard a loud pop during a routine workout, he feared the worst. “An MRI confirmed a torn distal brachialis tendon, which had torn partially off the short head of the bicep,” he said.
It was clear that Tony would need a brace fast, and Breg’s Billing Customer Care team helped arrange for his Compact X2K Elbow Brace. “They treated me like I was an all-pro linebacker; like I was someone,” he said of his interaction with Breg employees Katie Jenkins and Kathy Millers-Quinn. “They made me feel special from the get-go and showed they genuinely cared about my situation— and they even had the brace shipped overnight.”
Without his elbow brace, Tony estimates that his arm’s range of motion would have been limited to only about 20% of its full potential at best. He credits his brace and the kindness of Katie and Kathy for helping him return to his daily activities.
“The brace is a life-changer, I will be healed and back to being a dad at 100%—powerlifting and
coaching football again at full speed.”
