ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate initial effects of the non-elastic taping technique on grip strength and EMG in female with lateral epicondylalgia. METHODS: Twenty-two participants (mean age SD,52.8±10.2 years) with chronic lateral epicondylalgia (mean duration±SD, 13.1±9.9 months) participated in a placebo control study of an elbow taping technique. Outcome measures were pain-free grip and EMG taken before,immediately after application of tape. RESULTS: The experimental group were more significantly improved grip strength and muscle activity of forearm than control group. CONCLUSION: This study show that non-elastic taping technique is beneficial intervention for increase grip strength and EMG in female with lateral epicondylalgia.
