How To Apply Kinesiology Tape To Relieve Wrist Pain From De Quervain's Tenosynovitis

De Quervain's Tenosynovitis is a condition in which tendons in the wrist become irritated within a small tunnel. This can then lead to pain along the thumb's side of the wrist that can radiate into the forearm and/or thumb.

Using kinesiology tape can be an effective tool to relieve wrist pain and progress the healing process. Watch the video below to learn how to apply kinesiology tape yourself. Also, if you're experiencing pain while using your smartphone, I encourage you to listen to Ep. 4 on The FitRehab Podcast in which I discuss this topic further and offer additional tips on reducing pain while continuing to use your phone.


The specific tape that I used in the video above can be purchased on Amazon by clicking below:
