Taping is commonly used as an adjunct or temporary technique. Athletes often make use of taping as a protective mechanism in the presence of an existing injury.

Some of the goals with taping are to restrict movement of injured joints, soft tissue compression to reduce swelling, support anatomical structures, and as protection from re-injury. Taping is used as one of the means of rehabilitation or prophylaxis in instances where support and stability is needed, as a first aid tool, for the prevention of injury and protection of an injured anatomical structure while healing is taking place

Why is Taping important ?

  • Support: Taping can be used to give support to muscles that have been injured or overused, not only relieving some of the immediate pain, but also taking stress off that muscle and allowing for faster recovery
  • Adhesive: The adhesive for these tapes is far more complicated than the kind you would find on an everyday plaster. In order for these tapes to work as effectively as possible, it is crucial that they stay in one place. The glue used on these tapes will ensure that they do not move, will stay completely firmly on the body for days, and actually lifts up the skin underneath for breathability.

  • Healing: Other than taking stress off and relieving the pain of an injured muscle, taping is designed to encourage lymphatic flow. The lymph system is the system through which a clear liquid (lymph) flows around the body. Lymph carries white blood cells, which fight infection, but also takes care of any waste, dead cells, etc that may be found in the body. By encouraging lymphatic flow, recovery time is greatly reduced.
  • Encouraging better movement: The way we use our bodies is not always the best way to use them. For example, poor sleeping posture can lead to chronic pain. Similarly, if we learn or train to use certain body parts in certain ways, this can become constricting. Taping our bodies in a certain way can retrain them to move in ways that are more natural, easier, or safer
  • Training/Prevention: With the popularity of taping on the rise, many athletes have realized the potential of using tape to train. All the above benefits remain applicable, only in a way that prevents an injury rather than treating it.
