What is it?
The coloured tape you often see sports people wearing!
It involves the application of adhesive tape to facilitate pain relief, improve muscle/joint activity and swelling management.
The tape is not medicated and so is safe to use in most conditions, except where the patient has sensitive skin, allergies or loss of sensation to the area.
Commonly used in the treatment of:
– Painful or overactive muscles
– Muscle spasm
– Tension headaches
– Painful or unstable joints
– Muscle tears
– Poor muscle firing/activation
– Altered joint proprioception
– Oedema management
