Kinesio & Rigid Taping

Taping is generally used to offload or correct load on certain structures to make a positive effect on the musculoskeletal system.

Taping can be helpful for many conditions for many different reasons. Depending on what you are trying to achieve with taping will indicate which tape to use.

  • Rigid taping – used for maximum stability and control, improving proprioception.
  • Kinesiology taping – used for minimal stability, fascial de-loading, neurophysiological changes, improving proprioception.
  • Active taping – used for moderate stability, de-loading and reloading the musculoskeletal system through full range of motion, improving proprioception.

Taping is commonly used at Foundation Podiatry in conjunction with other therapies such as Medical Acupuncture, Low Level Laser Therapy, Shockwave Therapy, Foot strengthening exercises etc.
