Supporting You!

Taping is commonly used as an adjunct or temporary technique to provide a protective mechanism in the presence of an existing injury. Some of the goals with taping are to stabilise or support the injury, relieve pain by de-loading vulnerable or painful anatomical structures and help to facilitate normal movement, muscle action or postural patterns. These can be achieved by mechanical, neuromuscular, or psychological effects.

K-Tape is a blend of cotton and nylon, designed to mimic the skin’s elasticity so you can use your full range of motion. The tape’s medical-grade adhesive is also water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for three to five days. Used to treat sports and non-sports injuries and microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscles and fascia below it to create a decompressive effect. This type of taping application can reduce pain and improve mobility, alongside assisting the healing process.
