Taping

Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic use taping to either limit unwanted movement at a joint, offload specific muscles or tendons, limit swelling, or facilitate activity and contraction in a weak muscle.

The choice between taping and using a support or strap is dependent upon what it is required. Whereas taping can be more specific to the individual and the injury and can be preferred when competing in events where a strap with plastic buckles or support struts can be banned, such as in rugby, using a support can be preferential during training where the person can apply it themselves and adjust the tension if they feel it is too loose or tight.

At your appointment, your physiotherapist will conduct a thorough physical assessment and advise you as to what would be best for you.
