Sport Taping Edmonton | Sherwood Park
How can Sport Taping help you?
For years, athletes have been wrapping their joints and limbs with strapping and tape, laying it directly against their skin in order to restrict movement and keep bones and muscles in a specific position. In many cases, tape has been used to reduce pain, to aid in the recovery from an existing injury, or to prevent a new injury. Due to the restrictive nature of this form of tape, it must be removed soon after the activity has ceased.
Other common uses for sport taping in athletics include:
- Preventing an injury from getting worse
- Providing compression to manage swelling or bleeding
- Creating a barrier to prevent injury
- Securing a splint
- And holding bandages and dressings in place
Our therapist’s have received extensive training in the correct use of sport tape. There are many different kinds of sport taping – all of which have a specific purpose. Incorrectly applied tape can cause blistering and even contribute to further injuries. Frequently, taping is done in combination with other treatment – such as after a proper assessment or a massage therapy treatment.
