Kinesiology Tape for Rotator Cuff Pain
Learn about rotator cuff pain taping. The rotator cuff tendon lies between the shoulder bones. As the tendon becomes inflamed, it can become pinched. The sac of fluid that cushions the tendon can also be damaged. Both problems create rotator cuff pain.
Swimming, racquet sports, and throwing sports all have high incidents of rotator cuff problems. Inflammation is managed with icing and rest. If the tendon is torn or becomes unattached, surgery is required.
KT Tape helps manage rotator cuff pain by providing support and stability to the shoulder and rotator tendon. It can alleviate impingement and aid in body mechanics. Further KT Tape aids recovery by increasing circulation around the area of the injury.
