Rigid Adhesive Tapes
Rigid Adhesive Tapes are the traditional approach to providing support to joints and body parts for injury prevention or injury management. Used when there is a need to restrict the range of motion of a given joint, correct taping techniques can aid in the treatment of a wide range of painful musculoskeletal conditions such as lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, anterior knee pain, patellofemoral pain syndrome, and shoulder impingement syndrome. Most common is a rigid ankle taping technique that helps improve joint position.
Adhesive tapes can be manufactured in two main ways, porous and non-porous. Porous tape is manufactured in a manner which facilitates breathability without compromising strength. Sweat vapor moves through the tape which provides greater comfort, especially to those with sensitive skin. Non-porous tape is the traditional approach to tape, where the adhesive coats the entirety of the tape surface. Both processes are beneficial based on your preference.
