Strapping and Taping


No doubt you have seen athletes wearing tape, whether this be rugby players strapping their knees or runners with multi-coloured tape on their legs. Different types of tape are used for different purposes. Sometimes it is utilised for support and to reduce range of motion as a form of protection, whilst other times, it is used to reduce swelling.

Tape is not a suitable option for everyone but if it is applicable to your individual injury and needs, we can apply. The coloured kinesiology tape stays adhered to your skin for between 3-5 days, during which time you should feel relief from your symptoms and you can even wear it in the shower!
