Q42 - Kinesiology Tape


Upon elbow pain setting in at work, a vehicle seat assembler reports the pain to her supervisor. In the First Aid Office, the site Injury Prevention Specialist (Certified Athletic Trainer) evaluates the employee and puts her on a conservative treatment regimen of over the counter strength Naproxen per directions and cold compress treatments twice per day for three weeks. The icing treatments take place during one 45 minute job rotation per treatment. In addition, the Injury Prevention Specialist applies kinesiology tape to the employee’s elbow on a daily basis. The employee continues her routine job functions at full duty, accomplishing all tasks in her job description more than once per week while her condition is monitored. Is it recordable?
