Sports Taping and Strapping can be necessary to prevent re-occurrence of an old injury by adding extra stability to a joint. The most common type of tape used in Sports Taping is Zinc Oxide tape. Cohesive and Elastic Adhesive Bandages are also good methods of support.
Unlike Kinesio Tape, these types of tapes are only used during sporting events and not left on long-term. Overuse of a joint strap can lead to muscles weakening as they are not required to work when under pressure as the strap is doing the work which muscles or ligaments usually do.
At Pain Relief Limerick we can strap up any joint before a sporting event and give advice on rehabilitation necessary when the strap comes off. Strapping in the clinic will only take 5 minutes and will not incur a full treatment charge.
