Musculoskeletal Taping is often used in conjunction with other treatments as a protective mechanism. Our team will generally use taping to help restrict movement to protect injured joints, supporting anatomical structures and protecting our clients from re-injury.
There are a few different styles of taping that can be used in treating or preventing an injury.
Types of Taping
Rigid taping has been used for decades to stabilise a joint and prevent excessive movement, and can be used in treatment or prevention of injuries. Rigid taping can benefit our clients who require treatment from acute, sub-acute, or chronic conditions.
FFT is a technique developed by Ron Alexander where the taping alters pain and muscle firing patterns, helping to increase range of movement to accelerate rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pathologies.
FFT is non-invasive and can be applied to most regions of the body with equally impressive results. It can be used for virtually any musculoskeletal condition and generally at any stage, be it acute, sub-acute or chronic conditions.
Also known as Rock or K Taping, Kinesio Taping is a technique stemming from the science of Kinesiology, which is based around the body’s own natural healing process.
Kinesio Taping is a non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion, providing support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting the circulation and range of motion.
Our muscles regulate body temperature and circulation of venous and lymph flow, therefore the failure of muscle function induces a wide range of symptoms.
Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles and to support muscles in movement on a 24 hour basis.
