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..)
