Athletic taping is a valuable tool that can help athletes with both rehabilitation and performance. Sports medicine specialists often use athletic taping to improve the comfort and stability of joints, which can help an athlete heal from sports injuries, as well as prevent re-injury afterward. Additionally, this method can be used to improve flexibility and range of motion.
Athletic tape comes in several varieties which can be applied for different purposes. When it comes to improving the stability of a joint, athletic tape is most often used on ankles, knees, shoulders, and elbows. Athletic taping can help athletes by providing support and making them more aware of their body movements.
