Follow this easy kinesiology taping application video for TENNIS ELBOW using SPORTTAPE FLEX to provide dynamic support and pain relief. To save time for this tennis elbow kinesiology taping application we've used pre-cut strips from our FLEX KIT for this video.
Measure the tape from just above the elbow to the wrist
Prepare a Y-Strip
Rip the ends of the Y-Strip
Cut the tape if necessary (don't forget to round the edges!)
Flex(bend the wrist) down wards. This puts the forearm on stretch.
Lay the base with 0% stretch
Run the tails of the Y-Strip down the either-side of the forearm with 0% stretch
Anchor the ends with 0% stretch
Repeat with second tail
Extend wrist to normal position
Prepare short I-Strip by using the Centre Technique and removing the backing paper
Stretch the tape to 50% and apply on point of pain
Lay the anchors with 0% stretch
Finish by rubbing the glue to activate the adhesion
That's it! Then just wait 30mins to an hour before exercise. SPORTTAPE FLEX can be worn for up to 7 days (through multiple washes & swims) however we'd always recommend reapplying or removing after 3 days for maximum effect.
