HOW TO TAPE FOR TENNIS ELBOW

    1

  • Apply Fixation Tape as an anchor just below the elbow.

  • Using Zinc Oxide 3.8cm, apply a strip on top of the Fixation Tape from the medial to lateral side, folding half of the strip back on itself.

  • Apply a shorter strip of Zinc Oxide tape from lateral to medial overlapping on the first to create a tab.

  • Lift the tab and pull the tape laterally, laying down across the ulna.

    2

  • Measure enough Kinesiology Tape to fully cover the Zinc Oxide Tape.

  • Remove the centre section of backing paper. For more detail see our 'Taping Technique' video.

  • Stick the Kinesiology Tape down using the stretch technique, covering the Zinc Oxide tape fully.

  • Flex the wrist as much pain allows. Ths will place the muscles in the forearm on stretch.

  • Measure a strip of K tape along the length of the forearm and round the edges.
