Taping and Strapping
Taping techniques are commonly used by physiotherapists in the treatment and prevention of sports injuries.
Taping can be applied in a number of different ways depending on the required action. Examples are to release tension in over worked muscles, encourage activation in weaker muscles, support structures in protected positions where excessive movement can delay healing, managed swelling and give proprioceptive feedback to improve posture or movement control in the area.
In consequence, different types of tape can be used ranging from rigid to full flexible and includes Kineseotape ('K') Dynamic tape, Zinc Oxide and Elastive Adhesive Bandage
