Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with Theraband Kinesiology Tape

The revolutionary TheraBand™ Kinesiology Tape eliminates misapplication – even for beginners – thanks to its exclusive XactStretch™ Technology. The unique stretch guide indicators allow users to get the right stretch, every time. Also, it has the ability to provide durable support to muscles and joints and provide pain relief, while it lasts up to five days. What makes Theraband Kinesiology Tape great is that it doesn’t restrict you from moving while wearing it, since it is really flexible like skin, and it is not made from rubber latex which means it doesn’t irritate the skin while wearing it, and it can be used for a variety of injuries on different body parts.

In this article, we are going to show you how to correctly apply TheraBand™ Kinesiology Tape, in order to treat one of the most common hand conditions – the carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which pressure on the median nerve in the wrist causes numbness, weakness, and pain in the hand and wrist. When TheraBand™ Kinesiology Tape is applied to the wrist, it gently lifts the skin, reducing pressure on the underlying structures. It interacts with both the nervous system to provide pain relief and the lymphatic system to reduce swelling and inflammation.

Follow these simple steps to apply TheraBand™ Kinesiology Tape on the affected area:

  1. Measure the length of your forearm along the course of the median nerve
  2. Cut the needed length of kinesiology tape
  3. Do a 4cm Y cut at the end of the kinesiology tape
  4. Break the edges first and stick them down on the thenar and hypothenar eminence
  5. Flip the tape back and do 25-50% tension along the course of the median nerve through the forearm
  6. Optional: Add a decompression strip proximal to the carpal canal
