Strapping Video’s & Resources (Rigid & Kinesio Tape)

Introduction

Taping / strapping is a useful tool and has its place.  It certainly shouldn’t replace a proper diagnosis, treatment & rehabilitation.

We have specific short strapping booklets for rigid strapping & kinesiology strapping for you to download.

Below are some youtube & web links for rigid & kinesiology strapping.  These clips / links are not intended as a substitute for diagnosis or treatment.  They in no way way replace a professional opinion from your Doctor or Physiotherapist.

Kinesio Taping

There are an extraordinary  number of websites / links for KinesioTaping.  Our suggestion is to look at this site Kinesiology Tape Info Centre Tape as it brings togehter a few brands / varieties of Kinesio Taping Methods.  They also have some easily printable pages of the various Kinesiology Tapes here

There is really no proof to many of the claims but again it is a useful tool that we physiotherapists sometimes use.

This YouTube Channel “TapeExperts” appears to have the most comprehensive / least bias information & video’s avaialble.
