All this stuff is one-time use only ! I personally have bought Micropore tape and done some basic taping for ITB ( Iliotibial Band syndrome) fancy word for outer-knee side tendon connecting Thigh muscle to lower knee and meniscus weakness. Also treated my ankle ligament injury and plantar fasciitis due to accidents, foot pronation, bad sports shoes, etc.

:lol: :rofl: somehow I always injure myself :P

So taping does work to relieve stress on the tendon injuries. NO, DONT DO IT YOURSELF! YOU NEED THE PHYSIO!

I suffered through countless sleepless nights in pain, discomfort, re-injury. Tried all the rehab from YT videos, half-assed on my part due to poor understanding what I was doing. Nearly 8 months to 16 months trying to recover. Somehow ended up each time not playing TT for 6 months at a time, and recovered way too slowly and spent too much money doing making it worse on my own. :headbang:

GO TO THE PHYSIO! DO THE TAPING! FOLLOW THE REHAB AND TREATMENT WITHOUT FAIL! You will be fine when the physio says all is okay. 8)

And you won't be sorry later that you spent money on the proper treatment from the doctors with the MBBS.

:clap: :up:

Crazy right? Like sometimes I was just wondering whether these athletes really are sore or just outright fashion statement, especially in beach volleyball where they're practically half nekkid ( am guilty of watching em)


ROFL....

There is something about using tape to prevent overstretching of tendons etc. i personally did it and had very good results eventually and finally healed using regular taping. YMMV and dont do wat i did. :-D

So if it is placebo i have personal experience to say otherwise. No human body follows exact same mechanics as we are not robots off a factory assembly.

Deny it or claim it works doesnt matter to my opinion since i personally had it work for me. May not work for others :-D

Ditto the recommendations to go to physical therapy. I've had rotator cuff issues twice and each time recovered through the appropriate stretches and exercises. It requires professional judgement to help sort out exactly which exercises will work best.

I do know that if you ignore it, it doesn't get better, and often gets worse.

With damage like that it might settle down but it won't heal the only way is to bight the bullet & have surgery. :swear: :@ I've had surgery done on both my shoulders, very painful but with great results It's all about quality of life. :clap: :up:

I still have the roll I bought, I figured it would work as grip tape. The part of the video I was most amused by was the part about the tape company donating several thousand rolls of tape.. Great move! Whether it works or not I'm sure that was the beginning of it all. Of course, the Chinese are selling similar tape these days, though..

Incidentally - how about ice? I noticed that, at the WTTC two years ago, the Japanese team always applied ice to the shoulder right after each match. They'd hold it in place with several layers of Saran Wrap, on top of the player's shirt. After a few minutes they'd just rip it off.

(Didn't know what a "rotator cuff" was - turns out it's got something to do with the shoulder.. I thought it was a wrist thing, since that's where shirt cuffs are.. :lol: my shoulder does hurt from time to time after playing, and I'm going to try an ice pack. Daiso has 1kg chemical ice packs in a bag..)

My shoulder has been hurting off and on for a while, normally after I've been practicing loops. But something that REALLY hurts is doing a forehand flick against short backspin - it's got something to do with the outstretched arm, the hand rotated so that the blade is open on the forehand side, and having to lift the ball up and forwards. The last time this happened was last evening. It causes a sharp pain in the shoulder joint, and after that all my loops end up in the net, because I can't swing fast enough. Applying ice afterwards helps, but it takes a few days before the shoulder is pain-free. Any tips, other than avoiding the shot? It's something I really do want to practice and continue doing.

Iskandar, You need to have an ultrasound, find out what's wrong & if it is a torn tendon or a rotator cuff injury it might calm down with Cortisone that will deaden the pain for a while but damaged shoulders don't repair they just get worse. if it that sort of damage a shoulder operation is the only way because you need quality of life.

Yeah rotator cuff injury sucks! Sometimes it is a pinched tendon or outer or behind or inner tendons... Not easy to identify and diagnose .... Cortisone ! That's the steroid they inject to deaden and heal the tendon! But it is temporary .. I heard the tendon might get shortened if no proper follow up physio is done correctly.

Just had a steroid injection into my left shoulder, I’m told it’s rotator cuff and degenerative, been like it for a year now!

I can certainly relate, and no doubt this sport is tough on shoulders considering the repetition. I do work out three times a week, and include some band pull aparts, foam rolling of the upper back and shoulder area, ice- but basically workout so that I can play table tennis the way I want and to be able to move.

Our sport tends to have us bent forward a lot, and many, many repetitions in a forward pattern, so I do check posture against the wall in my office at work. If I back up to the wall and have the back of my head, rear end, and upper shoulders touch the wall, I try to hold that for a minute. Doing so makes me realize how out of posture I get- no doubt from the sport, but also daily life hunched over phones, computers, etc.
