Skin taping or strapping is a common technique used by physiotherapists during rehabilitation or injury prevention.

Some of the benefits of taping include:

  • Protection of injured soft tissue structures (ligaments, tendons, fascia)
  • Injury prevention
  • Enhance normal movement/ biomechanics
  • Pain reduction
  • Quicker return to sports/ work
  • Improve joint stability i.e. post ankle sprain
  • Reduce risk of re-injury
  • Reduce swelling
