What Is Taping and Strapping?

The role of tape is to limit the movement in an injured joint or structure to prevent excess or abnormal movement. In addition it should provide support to the affected structures therefore reducing pain.

What We Offer

Our Physios are educated in strapping and taping techniques. Strapping and taping techniques can help prevent injury as well as protect an athlete from re-injury whilst returning to sport. It can also be used on patients to inhibit muscles spasms and promote normal positioning.

Taping can sometimes also enhance co-ordination. For example if an ankle that is taped up starts to turn over during a jump the tape will prevent this from happening, letting the body know it needs to contract the muscles in the area to restrict this movement. If the tape wasn’t in place, the individual may be unaware of this movement occurring and could injure it again by landing on it badly.
