I’m Chris Harper and I’m here with Makayla to demonstrate application for tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is when you have pain on the outside portion of your elbow, and this may be caused from overuse of forearm muscles, or from racquet sports, especially when you have an improperly sized racket grip, or gripping objects while your hand is turned down or pronated. KT Tape helps treat this condition by relieving pressure, relaxing associated muscles, and may increase circulation.
For this application we’re going to place the elbow in ninety degree bend, and for our first part of the application I’m going to tear one full strip. I’m going to fold this in half, and using a pair of scissors I’m actually going to cut rounded corners on this piece. The rounded corners help prevent the corners from getting caught on clothing as you’re taking shirts on and off. Okay, with the first piece I’m actually going to twist and tear the.
Paper backing. While peeling that back, I’m being very careful not to touch the adhesive. Also, when I place this on stretch I’m going to create nice even pressure with my thumbs, versus gripping the tape like this. I’m going to go right over that point of pain, in this case we’re going to say it’s right about here. I’m going to stretch that to eighty percent, so a hundred percent and just backing that off just a little bit, and I’m sticking that down.
Just make sure that’s on there. Okay, and then these tail ends I’m just going to remove the paper and lay that down with absolutely zero stretch. So I’m just taking that paper off and laying that down with absolutely zero stretch. I’m going to give it a little bit of a rub to create friction and heat to make sure that adheres well.
And my next piece, I’m going to also twist and tear that backer paper. Right in th middle, applying nice even pressure. Im actually going to apply this right over that point a pain, crossing over that first piece, so I’m going to apply that with eighty percent stretch. So one hundredpercent, and backing that off just a little bit.
I’m applying that down, laying the tails of the tape down, being careful not to touch the adhesive of the tape, with absolutely zero stretch. I’m going to give that a little bit of friction just create heat and adhesion. For the last portion of this, I’m going to take a full strip, and with this piece I’m going to twist and tear down by the logo end of the tape.
Taking that piece off to create an anchor point. With this I’m going to apply just above my previous pieces on the skin, and I’m applying that was absolutely zero stretch. I’m going to peel the paper off, leaving myself a little paper to hang on to so I’m not touching the adhesive portion of the tape, and we’re going around the elbow with twenty five percent stretch, so if I stretch a hundred percent and back that off halfway.
Elbow Joint Human Anatomy Kenhub
Hello everyone! This is Joao from Kenhub, and today, of course, I’m bringing to you another anatomy tutorial, this time, dedicated to another joint in your body, another tricky one to learn, and this is the elbow joint as you probably guess by looking at this image here. Now, I’m going to simplify or try to simplify this joint to you because it’s quite tricky to learn, and for that reason, the very first thing that you have to understand is that the elbow joint is happening between three bones, three main bones as you notice here on this image as well. Now, the first one is this large bone here known as the humerus, and then you have this one located laterally,.
And this is the radius. And the third bone is this one located medially. This is the ulna. So these are the three bones that comprise the elbow joint or that are in the elbow joint. Now, an important thing to know is that also the elbow joint is a synovial hinge joint, and it is a compound joint. What is a compound joint? That might be one of the questions that you have in your mind right now. And a compound joint is simply a joint that is comprised of other joints, other subjointsâ€”I use this term looselyâ€”but other subjoints. And the subjoints, let’s say, that belong to the elbow joint or in the elbow joint are the humeroradial joint. As the name indicates, this is the joint occurring between the humerus,.
More specifically the capitulum of the humerus and the head of the radius. So this is the humeroradial joint. Now, the other one is, of course, the humeroulnar joint, and this is also happening, as the name indicates, with the trochlea of the humerus. This structure right here that I’m showing to you, and then of course, the trochlear notch of the ulna. Now, there is another joint that belongsâ€”the third jointâ€”that belongs to the elbow joint, and this is known as the proximal radioulnar joint, and this is a joint or an articulation that is occurring between the circumference or the articular circumference of the head of the radius, as you can see here, and then.
The radial notch of the ulna right here. So this is the proximal radioulnar joint. Keep in mind that I want to dedicate another tutorial, and I’m going to do that later, on this joint itself, the proximal radioulnar joint because you also find another one a little bit more distally known as the distal radioulnar joint, also occurring between the radius and the ulna. Now, knowing that, another point that I want to add here on the articular surfaces of the elbow joint of all these three joints that belong to the elbow joint is that they’re all covered or the articular surfaces are all covered, as you can see here on this imageâ€”this lighter or grayish color which is representing.
Hyaline cartilage. So all the articular surfaces of the elbow joint are covered by hyaline cartilage. Now, we’re going to talk about the capsule of the elbow joint, and I’m going to show you it right now. So this is the capsule. And the capsule also has an outline and is attaching to several structures on each bone that we talked about. So as you see on this outline here above or proximally, the capsule is attaching to the margins or along the margins of the coronoid and also the radial fossae. And I can just show you by removing the capsule that these are the margins ofâ€”here, this is the radial fossa, and here is the margin of the coronoid fossa, the humerus.
Now, if I put it back, you can also see that the capsule is attaching to both the lateral epicondyle and also the medial epicondyle of the humerus. But keep in mind that both epicondyles are exposed, as you can see here, so they’re not contained within this capsule that we’re talking about. Now, a little bit more distally or a little bit below here, you notice that the capsule is attached to the margin of the coronoid process here on the ulna. And it is attached on the radial side too on the lateral side to a ligament that we’re going to talk about and I’m showing you right now. So I just added this image of this ligament known as the annular ligament, and the capsule is definitely.
Attaching to this ligament as well here on the lateral side. Now, we’re still talking about the capsule of the elbow joint, but this time, we’re looking at it on the posterior side or the back view of the elbow joint. And I just have here an outline in green of where the joint should be or the capsule of the joint should be. So as you notice here that on the proximal side or this upper view here, that it is attached to the margins of the olecranon fossa of the humerus. Now, if you go a little bit more distally, you’ll notice here that it’s also attached to other margins, but this time, of the olecranon process of the ulna. Also a little bit more distally and you notice.
