How to apply Tape: Biceps
Bicep pain can be caused by a number of issues including muscle tears, pinched nerves, ligament or tendon damage, or swollen lymph nodes – among other things. Lifting too much weight, catching a heavy object, or repeated strain on the muscle and tendons can lead to pain in the biceps.
The pain will either be along the biceps muscles or at the front of the shoulder, indication biceps tendonitis. Pain along the muscle is more common in acute injuries, and pain at the front of the shoulder is more common in conditions that have developed over time.
KT Tape can help relieve the pain in the bicep by relaxing a damage muscle, increasing blood flow to reduce inflammation, or relieving pressure off the area*. However, pain at the bicep can range from a minor issue to a severe problem. If you are uncertain, see a medical professional.
