Taping or strapping can be utilised to prevent an injury from reoccurring or can be applied to patients following an injury to prevent further damage. They’re recommended for stability and support and come in various forms used for multiple purposes. Strapping is used to protect and support joints that may have become hypermobile and prone to dislocating. The compression of the taping also contributes to metabolism, which helps reduce swelling and alleviates tissue tightness more quickly.
Most health professions recommend and apply the treatment as it is a safe and efficient modality for preventing injury or maintaining a condition.
