  1. Athletic Taping

  2. Historically an important part of athletic training • Becoming decreasingly important due to questions surfacing concerning effectiveness • Utilized in areas of injury care and protection Why do people tape?

  3. Tape vs. Brace

  4. Customized to each person • Lightweight • Takes up little space • Effectiveness has been proven • Used where braces are not permitted • Inexpensive for short term Advantages of taping

  5. Expensive for long term use • Requires time to apply • Need practice to apply • Support effectiveness diminishes with time • Development of allergies Disadvantages for taping

  6. KT or Kinesotape

  7. Skin surface should be clean of oil, perspiration and dirt • Hair should be removed to prevent skin irritation with tape removal • Tape adherent is optional • Foam and skin lubricant should be used to minimize blisters Preparation for Taping

  8. Tape directly to skin • Prewrap (roll of thin foam) can be used to protect skin in cases where tape is used daily • Prewrap should only be applied one layer thick when taping and should be anchored proximally and distally Preparation for Taping

  9. Tape width used dependent on area • Acute angles = narrower tape • Overlap strips by ½ to ¾ tape width • Every taping job is individual Proper taping technique

  10. Various techniques can be used but should always allow athlete to hold on to roll of tape • Do not bend, twist or wrinkle tape • Tearing should result in straight edge with no loose strands • Some tapes may require cutting agents Tearing tape

  17. Low-dye taping helps to improve foot biomechanics by keeping the athlete from over pronating (foot rotating inward). • If low-dye taping gives significant relief, it is a strong indication that functional orthotics may be appropriate. • This procedure does not always provide relief. If there is no relief after two to three procedures, low-dye taping should be discontinued, Low-Dye Taping (Arch)

  19. Turf toe, technically called a metatarsalphalangeal joint (MPJ) sprain, can occur after a forceful hyperextension (upward bending) of the big toe, causing damage to the ligaments and joint capsule. • Taping can help stabilize the MPJ of the big toe, keeping it from hyper-extending.

  21. The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body, joining the lower leg gastrocnemius and soleus muscles to the heel bone (calcaneus). • Most ruptures of the Achilles tendon occur with the contraction of the calf muscles. • Taping is an effective way to relieve strain and overstretching.

  23. Shin-splints, or medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), should be properly diagnosed prior to treatment. • Circumferential elastic taping is a common method for providing some relief, giving gentle compression that relieves some of the discomfort of MTSS. Shin-Splint Taping

  25. Finger support can be obtained from a simple buddy taping procedure. Finger Taping

  26. Hyperextension of the elbow is normally the result of falling on an outstretched arm or hand. • Taping prevents hyperextension and prevents hyper mobility, a body part from moving beyond its normal range of motion. Elbow Taping

  28. Groin wrap uses a specialized wrap designed for this area to help with rehabilitation and recovery. • Double length six inch elastic wrap. Groin Wrap
