Whether you’re training for your first marathon, getting ready for your next game, reaching a personal fitness goal, or just trying to get through the day, you already know that nothing slows you down faster than pain and injury. At South Dublin Physical Therapy we offer taping as a standalone service or a complement to our Physical Therapy treatments.
KT TAPE as a standalone service and as a complimentary tool in providing you with additional stable support without restricting your motion.
KT TAPE is lightweight and comfortable to wear and avoids the bulk and restriction commonly associated with wraps and heavy bracing. When applied by a certified KT TAPE practitioner, it can be used for hundreds of common injuries such as lower back pain, knee pain, shin splints, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow, just to name a few.
Our Physical therapists apply KT TAPE along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from injuries. KT TAPE is designed and manufactured to provide stable support without restricting motion.
Zinc Oxide Taping
Zinc oxide tape is a strong rigid adhesive tape which can be used on a number of joints such the ankle, knee etc. Its main function is to prevent injury but can be used on areas which have previously been injured as a support to the joint, muscle or tendon/ligament; this means the joint has a restricted range of movement which allows not just a faster recovery from injury but also prevention from injury.
