Anti-vibration Gloves?

Long story short, I've been dealing with reoccurring "tennis elbow." Unfortunately, it's my right arm. Therapist suggested I invest in anti-vibration gloves for riding, so I'm wondering if anyone has dealt with this before? Need to do some research, but I'm hoping a gear manufacturer already produces gloves that address the problem --any suggestions? Thx!

Trust me .. Buy some heavy bar ends and see the difference. I use the throttle miester bar ends for my bike and its heavy. Hayabusa bar ends are also heavy. Steel bar ends... Not light weight alluminum.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jimrad! I wasn't thinking about other ways to approach it. =)

Bar ends will help a lot. If you still have some after switching out the ends, try some of the gloves with gel in the palms. Another thing that helps is Grip Puppies. The neoprene seems to soak up some of the vibration.

Haven't seen you post in a long time! Glad your still with us!
I had tennis elbow for a while and what helped me was a strap they sell at drugstores. It had a bump that put pressure on the tendon. Just a thought...
As far as riding it sounds like some good suggestions have already been made. Bar ends and padded gloves should help.
If you have tubular bars, maybe a bar snake. A heavy thing you put inside the bar. Or lead shot in the bar.

I used to have problems with the vibrations from my FZ6. I added a set of grip puppies. Problem solved. Did a Iron Saddle Sore 1000 last November without a problem.

I put a set on my FJR as soon as I bought it, but removed them shortly after when I realized that they insulate the heated grips (DUH !!!). If you want them PM me your address and I'll pop them in the mail.
