How to Prevent Receiving an Injury While Playing Sports
It’s common practise in many sports, to immobilise or stabilise joints before taking to the field, pitch or ring! As an example, rugby players will often strap their ankles and knees with a rigid tape, these joints are frequently weakened due to an earlier injury and they require stabilisation before use. Our range of zinc oxide tapes offer this level of stability and support that you would expect for professional use, giving the player confidence they can perform unimpeded. These tapes along with the correct taping techniques, give support to the ligaments and improve the overall joint stability.
Our tapes are not just limited to professional sports people, lighter supports are also used in a variety of activities like tennis, climbing or just leisurely walks through the countryside – using an elastic adhesive bandage or a cohesive bandage – you can add stability to a joint to help improve your overall experience – more over with a wide range of brands and products on offer – we have something to meet most situations.
