Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis as it is also known is a condition that results in pain and tenderness to the outer elbow and forearm. Tennis elbow is caused by overuse of these muscles and in many cases can persist for a long period of time if not managed properly.
Taping can aid those suffering with tennis elbow by reducing swelling, providing additional support to the joint and reducing pain.
To maximise recovery time individuals should supplement their taping by lightly stretching their forearm muscles, using ice after strenuous activities and focussing on resting their affected arm.
Here is a demonstration of kinesiology taping for tennis elbow.
