Tennis elbow involves inflammation of the area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attach to the outside bony area (called the lateral epicondyle) of the elbow.
Tennis elbow is caused by either abrupt or subtle injury of the muscle and tendon area around the outside of the elbow. Although tennis elbow commonly affects tennis players, it also affects other athletes and people who participate in leisure or work activities that require repetitive arm, elbow, and wrist movement including golfers, baseball players, bowlers, gardeners, carpenters, mechanics, and assembly-line workers. Common treatments include icing and anti-inflammatory medications.
KT Tape provides support to the affected tendons as well as increased circulation around the affected area, speeding recovery. Pain relief is immediate and continues 24 hours per day.
