BACKGROUND: Lateral epicondylitis (LE) is a painful condition that affects the tendinous tissue of the lateral epicondyle of the humerus and leads to loss of function of the affected limb. Therefore it can have a major impact on the patient's social and personal life. Many treatments are recommended for lateral epicondylitis; unfortunately the evidence is limited. OBJECTIVES: The aim of study was to investigate the effect of kinesio taping (KT) on pain, grip strength and function in patients LE...

Medial patellar instability can be a disabling complication of an extensive lateral retinaculum release. It is often overlooked, and for the diagnosis, it is necessary to have a high index of suspicion. Typically, the patient feels a new pain and new instability after the lateral retinaculum release that are distinct from, and much worse than, those before surgery. All of our patients had significant relief from their pain with "reverse" McConnell taping. If there is a significant improvement in symptoms after this taping and stress radiographs or stress axial computed tomography scans show an objective pathologic medial patellar displacement, reconstruction of the lateral retinaculum should be considered...

BACKGROUND: Tennis elbow (TE) is a common musculotendinous degenerative disorder of the extensor origin at the lateral humeral epicondyle. Different modes of treatment are used for management of tennis elbow. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the effect of the taping technique (TT) on pain, grip strength and wrist extension force in treatment of tennis elbow. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty patients (16 men /14 women with a mean age of 32.2 years) with tennis elbow of their dominant arm participated in this study...

In this study, Kinesio Tape(R) is used in patients with lateral epicondylitis. The ultrasonic image sequences of elbow are recorded dynamically, and then motion tracking is applied to assist in understanding the effect of the therapy. Motion tracking, based on optical flow method, is used to track certain landmark on the ultrasound image, which is very ambiguous, for estimating the motion of muscle. Hierarchical block tracking technique is proposed to perform this task. The motions with and without Kinesio Taping are compared and can be used as quantitative indicators for the treatment...

The purpose of the study was to investigate the biomechanical effects of different types of braces that are used in the treatment of patients with epicondylitis radialis. Vibration and acceleration of the forearm and the elbow were measured with sensors taped to defined anatomic points on the skin surface. The impact-induced vibration of the racket-arm system was analyzed while the subjects were playing tennis. Different designed brace systems were investigated with respect to acceleration amplitudes and acceleration integrals...

An extensile posterior approach to the radius was studied on 20 forearm anatomic specimen upper limbs. The skin incision followed a line from the lateral epicondyle of the humerus to a point corresponding to the middle of the posterior aspect of the wrist. Dissection was done between the extensor digitorum communis and the extensor carpi radialis brevis. The posterior interosseous nerve was identified, and the muscle fibers of the superficial head of the supinator were divided from distal to proximal to the posterior interosseous nerve, which was dissected and carefully retracted laterally...

48 patients with an acute lateral and/or medial epicondylitis of the elbow, induced by sporting activities, were treated in a prospective, controlled, double-blind, and randomised clinical study over a period of one to two weeks in a standard manner, either with taping and the oral NSAID proglumetacine b.i.d. (26 patients: 8 women, 18 men; mean age of 37.8 years) or with taping and an oral placebo b.i.d. (22 patients: 11 women, 11 men; mean age of 40.0 years). The course of complaints was followed on the basis of a functional index (created according to Lequesne)...

This study examined the validity of an anthropometric estimate of thigh muscle cross-sectional area using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The anthropometric model assumed that a cross section of the thigh could be represented as a circle with concentric circular layers of fat-plus-skin, muscle, and bone tissue. On 18 healthy, active men and women (mean +/- SD age = 23 +/- 5 yr), total thigh circumference (CT) was measured with a fiberglass tape, fat-plus-skin thickness was measured over the quadriceps (SQ) using calipers, and the distance across the medial and lateral femoral epicondyle (dE) was measured with calipers...
