Re: For those with snapping triceps syndrome, golfer's elbow, subluxating ulnar nerve


Went back to the chiro today for some extra ART and massage, and tested some pushups WITHOUT the KT tape, expecting the snapping to return but surprisingly I was able to do it fine!

Who would've thought that the KT tape would stop the snapping after I had taken it off. The chiro says in addition to assisting with the mechanical load, the tape offers proprioceptive feedback to the elbow. The tape touching the skin and stretching during movement aids in muscle-recruitment, apparently. Whatever, it works for me!

So here's an injury that the medical community tells us can only be dealt with through inactivity or surgical nerve transpositioning (just an illustration WFS), yet is seemingly improved with massage, stretching, and taping.
