To achieve this we use a wide variety of tapes such as:
Rigid Strapping Tape
Rigid Strapping Tape (often referred to as ‘sports tape’ or ‘athletic tape’) is arguably one of the most rigid tapes commonly used by health professionals. The tape provides extra support to the joints when under high stress particularly during intensive sporting activities.
Elastic Strapping Tape
Elastic Strapping Tape is often used when less support is required such as for compression bandaging over muscle and joint areas and to help keep wound dressings in place during intensive sporting activities.
Kinesiology tape or kenesio-tape is a another form of elastic therapeutic tape. It is often used to support dynamic movement during rehabilitation or sporting activities and to assist the body’s natural response to inflammation to promote recovery and repair.
