So you have a good understanding of human anatomy and the structures you wish to tape. But, how do you decide what tape to use to achieve your desired outcome e.g. immobilisation, restriction of motion, or support of a ligament or muscle?
Fundamentally this comes down to two things; the amount of support and degree of stretch a tape can offer.
In this second post we take a look at stretch and explain how this can affect the amount of restriction a tape can provide. You can learn how the support and tensile strength properties of a tape can aid your decision in our previous blog.
