This is an effective treatment which can be used in both pre and post rehabilitation of sports injuries. A stretchy tape is applied on to an injured muscle or joint to prevent further damage and promote healing.
A lot of athletes use kinesio tape on things like tennis elbow, knee injuries, rotator cuff problems which help support any damaged structures whilst playing.
In the clinic postural taping maybe used to hold your shoulders in place to make patients more aware of having a bad posture. It is a good adjunct to other treatments used at the practice to make patients aware of an injury they may have.
Research shows the tape lifts the skin helping muscle tissue glide more easily and helps with venous return and therefore swelling. Therefore supporting tendons and muscles and preventing strains and sprain injuries.
There are various suppliers of different types of tapes with “rock tape” being an affiliate of the crossfit games, and kinesio tape being the original supplier. All with similar results and quality. Freddie has training and experience in all the different taping techniques from rigid ankle strapping, to dynamic taping so can adapt to the athlete and patient requirements.
