Rigid and Kinesio Taping

Recovery from an injury can be a complex process that necessitates expert care and innovative techniques. At Excellence Physio & Rehab, we incorporate cutting-edge methods such as Rigid and Kinesio Taping into our treatment plans to offer our patients the best possible care while aiding injury recovery.

Rigid Taping is revered for its benefits in injury prevention and support during healing. Used extensively in sports therapy, rigid taping stabilizes an injured joint or muscle by restricting its movement. By restricting some movement, it enables the injured muscle or joint to rest, preventing further strain and assisting in a quicker healing process. Conditions commonly managed with rigid tapping include sprained ankles, stress fractures and shoulder dislocations.

On the other hand, Kinesio Taping enhances the natural healing process by providing support and stability to muscles and joints without affecting the body’s range of motion. This type of taping is beneficial for both sports-active individuals and those undergoing rehabilitation therapy.

Kinesio taping works by microscopically lifting the skin, enabling a better flow of blood and lymphatic fluids to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and expedite recovery. It is frequently employed in managing conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain, knee conditions, and shoulder injuries. Additionally, it can be effective in reducing edema and managing post-surgical recovery.

Our expert physiotherapists are adept at applying both rigid and Kinesio taping methods, analyzing each patient’s unique needs and implementing the appropriate taping method. Whether you are a professional athlete, a weekend warrior, or recovering from surgery, our team can employ these taping methods to help accelerate your recovery.

Moreover, we also offer Bulk-Taping Training for sports teams purchasing a minimum of two cartons. Our training programs are designed to equip sports teams with vital knowledge and proper techniques to apply taping within their routine, helping to prevent injuries and support muscles and joints in training and competitions.
