Frequently Asked Questions
Why Use Athletic Tape & Pre tape Spray?
Athletic tape with pre tape spray can be used for a variety of tricks to support muscles throughout the body. There are different opinions about how and why tape works, but it started to limit muscle movement and help with proprioception, the body’s innate ability to tell where the limbs are positioned. Athletes would feel the tape on their bodies when they moved particular muscles and understand which were related to their injuries. Presently, athletic tape with pre tape spray can be used for a variety of fixes and needs.
What Kinds of Athletic Tape Are There?
- Rigid tape: this is stiff material that reduces joint movement, has little give, and includes zinc-oxide based glue which is strong and adheres to skin well.
- Under tape: this goes under rigid tape and is nicer to skin.
- Elastic tape: this offers flexibility and can be applied to skin, muscles, and soft tissues; it’s usually made of cotton and lets skin breathe.
- Felt tape: this acts as a barrier to skin, includes no glue, and is usually more comfortable.
- Cohesive bandages: these don’t have any glue in them; they stick to each other when they’re wrapped around a joint or muscle.
- Kinesio-type tape: this is most common for sports; it adjusts to the skin and accommodates movement.
What Should I Use Athletic Tape and pre tape spray for?
Some common uses for tape with pre tape spray are:
- Stabilizing ankles
- Supporting knees
- Solidifying shoulders
- Opening elbows
- Supporting weak or injured muscles
- Improving muscle contraction
- Preventing overuse
How Do I Use Athletic Tape?
Make sure skin is clean and free of topical injuries or conditions like eczema. Position the tape as directed by your athletic trainer and reinforce with protective padding if necessary. Tape position largely depends on the particular muscle being taped. Ensure that the tape goes on smoothly and is not so tight that circulation is cut off. If the individual is experiencing a “pins and needles sensation,” it may be too tight. If this is the case, remove the tape by cutting it off and begin again with a longer piece.
How Do I Take off Athletic Tape?
Cut tape off with scissors instead of ripping it off in long pieces; your skin will thank you, regardless of the type of tape. Be sure to remove tape before it becomes less than appealing. Over time, tape loses its adhesive and may turn colors depending on the amount of sweat, dirt, and debris on the skin.
What are Some Things to Remember When using Athletic Tape and pre tape spray?
Apply tape and pre tape spray only to healthy skin. Avoid sunburns, skin with lotion on it, and areas that wrinkle, like hands and feet. Consider tape part of your regular routine rather than a magic fix for screaming muscles. Utilize the right kind of tape for your particular need. Remember that muscles require rest, and that overexerted muscles, even if taped, can become injured with improper form.
What are some types of taping?
Kinesiology taping (KT) is a therapeutic tool and has become increasingly popular within the sporting arena. Taping has been used for a long time for the prevention and treatment of sporting injuries. KT is not only used for sporting injuries but for a variety of other conditions. It was developed by Japanese Chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase in the 1970s with the intention to alleviate pain and improve the healing in soft tissues. There are many proposed benefits to KT, including proprioceptive facilitation; reduced muscle fatigue; muscle facilitation; reduced delayed-onset muscle soreness; pain inhibition; enhanced healing, such as reducing edema, and improvement of lymphatic drainage and blood flow.
Mobilization with Movement (MWM) developed by Brian Mulligan FNZSP (Hon) of New Zealand is recognized worldwide in manual therapy approaches. His concept is the application of manually applied accessory joint glide with concomitant pain-free active movement. During the development of MWMs, Brian Mulligan discovered that treatment in some patients was enhanced when he utilized taping to compliment the directional forces provided after the MWM treatment bout. Taping is applied in directions that complement the applied MWM passive force to joint or soft tissue.
McConnell taping (also known as Patellar Taping) is often used to treat patients with anterior knee pain, more specifically with patients with Chondromalacia Patellae and Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome). The tape corrects the tracking of the patella within the patellar groove by medializing the patella. The technique also stretches lateral soft tissues and strengthens the vastus medialis obliques.
