Rigid sports tape is used post-injury during sporting activities. When applied in the correct manner, the tape provides support to muscle and ligament injuries, allowing athletes to return to their favorite sports with more confidence. The value of sports tape is that you can restrict, for example, movement of a body part in a particular direction. In the case of ankle strapping you may want to restrict the inward-outward movement (inversion) where the ankle is weak, but maintain some flexibility in dorsi flexion (up down). Sports Tape is also said to provide you with a proprioceptive ‘reminder’ that a particular body part is weaker due to injury, thus may be more susceptible to re-injury.
