Sports Taping is an effective way of speeding up bruise healing and deloading muscles to aid pain reduction, increase treatment benefits and improve performance. Taping can provide some support to joints such as (though not exclusively) knees, ankles and shoulders, and is often used by atheletes to help facilitate continued play or rehab. After discussion this form of treatment will be worked into the treatment programme.
The use of tape in any appointment will be discussed during the session and will be an additional £5 to cover the cost of the tape.
Patients may be asked to “dress down” so that the symptomatic area is visible. This enables a more accurate functional diagnosis. Please dress in sensible clothes, for example: a sports bra and shorts for ladies and shorts for the gentlemen.
