Upper limb overuse injuries, such as tennis elbow, may be challenging in terms of both diagnosis and management, and there is no consensus on a gold standard intervention. Despite limited evidence in the literature to support the efficacy of kinesiotaping, this new treatment modality has gained popularity among athletes and the general public and is commonly used to treat these conditions. Clinicians are therefore relying on lower levels of evidence and/or expert opinion when deciding whether to use this treatment and it is likely that there are varying perspectives on its potential clinical benefits. The purpose of this study was to compare the opinions of hand therapists, general practitioners (GPs) and hand surgeons on the use of kinesiotape for upper limb overuse injuries.
