Desjardins-Charbonneau, A., Roy, J.-S., Dionne, C. E., & Desmeules, F. (2015). THE EFFICACY OF TAPING FOR ROTATOR CUFF TENDINOPATHY: A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND META-ANALYSIS. International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, 10(4), 420–433“.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4527190/.

This systematic review and meta analysis evaluates the effect of kinesiology taping (KT) and non-elastic taping (NET) for rotator cuff tendinopathy. 10 studies are included in the review. Due to the methodological issues in the original studies and because all the studies were so different from one another, the authors were unable to make a recommendation about the effectiveness of KT or NET. Some of the studies did show a positive result, so further high quality studies are needed in this area.
