Strapping tape has been used in sport for many years. Many foot, ankle and lower limb problems can be assisted by using rigid strapping tape, especially when it’s applied correctly. With a little training you can become more proficient at applying strapping tape.
Strapping can be very beneficial for injury prevention but it can be very useful after an injury has occurred for support and stability. All ankles and knees should be strapped if you have ever had an injury. Injuries to the supporting ligaments of a joint will make the joint unstable, and is unlikely to return to 100%, therefore strapping tape should be used.
