The elbow consists of three bones coming together at a junction, as well as the muscles that serve to flex, extend, and rotate the arm. The elbow also consists of ligaments that hold these bones in place, tendons that attach muscles to bones, cartilage that allows for smooth movement of the bones at their joints, and nerves that provide functionality to the arm. Each of these different parts can become irritated or strained resulting in pain.
Many times elbow pain can be dull and achy, and not specific to any one particular area. There may also be times when you will want general support for use in sport, daily activities, or outdoor work. The following application will help to provide pain relief and support during activity, and can be used to address general elbow weakness due to pain.
Elbow weakness and pain can occur due to hyperextension of the elbow, overuse in sport or physical activity, or as a result from problems further down or up the arm. Those with professions that use the hands and arms with repetitive strain -- such as hairstylists, mechanics, massage therapists, or warehouse employees -- will find that general elbow pain is unfortunately sometimes part of the job.
KT Tape will help to provide the needed support and pain relief to help recover faster and avoid further injury. More specific elbow pains can be addressed with our other elbow applications, but use this application for general elbow pain and overall support. Try to avoid activities that cause the elbow significant stress, and ice after activity.

gravTrox - here's what we found: you might want to avoid applying tape directly to the anterior part of the elbow due to the thin, sensitive skin in that area. If you need support in the anterior portion of the elbow, you might want to try our tape applications for both outside areas of the elbow to see if it provides the support you need.
Could y’all do a series for MDI (multi directional instability). I have it in all of my joints and as i’m very active it gets hard to deal with sometimes. Usually i combine different techniques and personalize it for myself but some places i can’t figure out, including my elbows especially. Thanks
here's a few ideas about treating tennis elbow at home

(I read these and why they work from Secret Elbow Tactics site )
My dad was playing basketball and when he tried to dive in for the ball , someone ran into his elbow and I guess he sprained it or Idk or popped it. Now his okay , his juss feeling pain on his elbow.. how should I tape that ??
Do you have a video to show people how to make the adhesive on the KT tape actually good? If you plan on putting this stuff on a part of your body that bends. Like the elbow. Make sure you carry scotch tape with you
I play volleyball and I fell on my elbow and there's a bruise on the inside of my left elbow would this tape be good for it I've also had small bumps inside my forearms when I messaged down towards my fingers like my trainer told me would the tape be good for that also?
I tried a few different ways of taping my elbow - and found this way to be the best - I can actually continue on doing my house work with no pain! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!! it is hard to do on myself but it works!
Yes. In fact for obstacle courses I'd recommend the KT Tape Pro. It will stay on for around 5 days if you apply it correctly. Putting in on the night before is a good idea as that gives the adhesive time to really bond before you start the activity.
It's hard to say without seeing it. If you have severe pain, restricted range of motion, excessive swelling or bruising you should probably have it checked out. When in doubt, it's never a bad idea to have an injury looked at by a Dr.
