Taping the Elbow
Conditions such as Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow are very common amongst athletes in all types of sports. Along with golfers and tennis players, swimmers, rowers and volleyball players are also prone to Elbow Tendonitis. That’s why you see so many of them with their elbows taped up.
Taping the elbow can help prevent strain and re-injury during physical activity. Also at risk are people who use their elbow and forearm repetitively at work, such as painters and carpenters. If your line of work has caused a repetitive strain injury in your elbow, you may want to consider wearing tape while you work.
This will help to protect and support your fragile tissue and prevent further aggravation. Taping also provides light compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day.
