Tape can be used for many reasons and often as an adjunct to treatment, but if you’re looking for some guidance with when to use it and how to apply it, book in with our Physiotherapist Charlotte. We use traditional stiff tape and elastic kinesiology taping (the colourful tape seen on many high-level sports people) for various reasons.
To support a joint
To inhibit or facilitate muscle function
To provide feedback to your brain for balance and body awareness
To protect an injury
To assist with lympthatic drainage and swelling management
We request that all tape is purchased through the clinic to ensure optimal quality and the correct tape for the required technique is used. All surplus tape can then be kept and reused the next time you require strapping.
