Abstract: Background: Lateral epicondylitis is most common over use syndrome which is a classic repetitive strain injury seen all over the world. This comparative study is investigated the effects of taping along with static stetching and eccentric exercise programme in subjects with lateral epicondylitis. Methodology: The study was design in comparative nature.20 subjects were selected and divided it two groups: control group (n=10) received only exercise programme, and study group (n=10) received taping with exercise programme. Before starting the treatment both groups were assessed using the numerical pain rating scale. After the treatment sessions both groups were assessed again by using the numerical pain rating scale to check the significance of taping with exercise programme. Results: The results of this study taping with exercise programme (study group) shows decrease in the pain as compare to exercise programme alone (control group). The result shows that there is no significant difference between using the lateral taping with exercise programme or exercise programme alone for the management of lateral epicondylitis. Conclusion: The effectiveness of taping with exercise programme leads to better outcomes in treatment of lateral epicondylitis then exercise programme alone in reduce pain.
