Hyperextention Elbow Brace

My 12 year old daughter is extremely double jointed and is playing softball this season. She is complaining of her right elbow hurting about half way through playing - she plays 3rd base and has to throw a lot! Would the HXt hyperextention elbow brace help her to not overextend her elbow in throwing the softball? Thanks for your help. I don't want her to injure her arm and suffer long term.
