Both our rigid and stretchy tapes provide exceptional support whenever preventative taping is required and can be applied as a preventative taping and also for post-injury taping (rehabilitation techniques) following injury.
The Trouble Spots & How To Tape Them: Thumb | Knee | Ankle | Shoulders The above techniques (see images above) may be used to provide muscle and bone support and are particularly beneficial following a muscle sprain, strain, injury, or as a preventative measure.
Generally, it’s recommended that the area is shaved 12 hours prior to taping (to prevent painful removal of hairs and skin irritation).
Thinner tape widths should be utilised for the smaller areas, such as the hand and ankle.
A tight taping method should be applied to the areas to assist in ensuring muscle tension whilst keeping in mind the 2 basic rules of taping:
1. When you need to restrict joint movement, use a rigid strapping tape.
2. When you need to compress and support joints or muscles, use a kinesiology adhesive bandage.
