An effective way to treat a myriad of conditions such as muscle pain, bruising, sore muscles, bad posture, swelling, strains, sprains, support during training, arthritic conditions, menstrual complaints, headaches and even sinusitis. Tapes, both elastic and non-elastic, are applied directly to the skin. The most important effect of the tape is pain relief and the second is increased mobility. That relationship between pain and movement is critical. A perceived decrease in pain enables more movement, which is essential to recovery and rehabilitation. How to tape oneself, friends or loved ones safely and effectively is explained in easy-to-understand directions and step-by-step photos showing how taping works, where and when it can be applied, and what to do during a practice session.
