O.17. Elbow tape to sustain medial glide olecranon after MWM

Start the tape lateral aspect of olecranon (slightly away from olecranon)
End the tape on lateral humerus

to sustain effect of medial glide olecranon

-golfer’s elbow
-limitation of elbow flexion/extension due to pain and/or stiffness

IMPORTANT information and notes:
  • Apply tape with client’s elbow (30 degrees) flexed and fully supinated
  • Medial glide olecranon, while adding the tape to increase tape tension
  • To avoid skin irritation use a commercial underwrap to protect the skin from friction and chafing.
  • Use non-stretch sports tape (30 mm) with underwrap (to avoid skin reaction)  
  • Never leave the tape more than 48 hours
  • If there is any irritation remove the tape immediately.
  • Ensure that after taping the provocative movement is less painful and ROM is improved.
  • Ensure NO PAIN, no discomfort
