Has an injured muscle or tendon made you feel slower or weaker than normal? Whether you’re amateur sport athlete or a professional athlete that requires physical labour, a body free of tension and pain is essential for peak performance.
Stay active and don’t let pain sideline you! That brightly colourful tape that you see on the arms, legs and torso of Olympic athletes are more than just a fashion trend. When applied correctly by a physiotherapist or chiropractor, it can help support injured joints, worn muscles, overstretched ligaments in nearly every area.
There are three types of supportive taping that can be used depending on your type of injury:
Individuals with muscle, joint, ligament, sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, certain athletic goals and nerve problems can greatly benefit from Kinesio taping or athletic taping. These conditions include:
Incorrect taping may lead to blistering or future injuries. Don’t take the chance! Serving the St. Albert and Edmonton area, our experienced physiotherapists and chiropractors have the knowledge and skills to apply the taping best suited to achieve your goals. We sometimes combine additional treatments with corrective exercise to address concern in athletes.
Our clinicians are trained in applying traditional athletic tape, elastic strapping tape, as well as K tape. When we look at your injury, we will provide you with a treatment plan that would serve you in the best way possible.
