No doubt you have seen the brightly coloured tape worn by athletes recently; this is kinesiology tape, or kinesiotape. Unlike some other more traditional strapping, kinesiology tape is elasticated so does not restrict joint range of motion.
Depending on the way it is applied, the tape can be used to unload tendons, decrease pain, reduce swelling and optimise performance… It can even be worn in the swimming pool.
We realise this tape does not suit everyone so we will only apply if applicable to your individual injury and needs. The tape regularly stays adhered to the skin for between 3-5 days, during which time you should feel relief from your symptoms.
