Sports taping techniques are often used in sports to support weak or injured joints. We would use taping to support joints, ligaments and muscles. Sometimes we might use it to offload them or to encourage the muscles or tendons to work so there are very different reasons to use taping but generally it is to support a structure that has been injured.
Not only are there various taping techniques, there are also various taping materials. At St.Clairwest Physiotherapy we use a variety of tape such as athletic tape, K-tape, and leukotape to support the area.
Come on in to have your injury evaluated and see which taping technique and type of tape will help you achieve optimal performance.
