Different tapes are used for this purpose, some are stretchy and some tight based on your particular need. Kinesio tapes or stretchy tapes which are very popular these days and are mostly used in tendinitis, tendon injuries, pulled muscles or rotator cuff injuries or tennis elbow.

What to expect?

Based on which type is used the stretchier Kinesio-tape is not super tight and will not interfere with your motion but will support it making movement efficient. These applications typically last for three to four days and need to be redone after.

The tighter tape limits your motion and gives muscle and joint feeling of stability as in the case in ligament injuries. Some people can be allergic to the glue used in the tape and in such people underwrap should be used to avoid skin irritation or the use can be discontinued.
