Why offer taping?

Taping is popular with within the sporting world and is often visualized by the spectator in the professional sporting arena, but why do we use it?

ECP uses taping to achieve desired goals within rehabilitation and is excellent tool to reduce pain, aid circulation, reduce swelling, inhibit tissue tension, inhibit excessive movement and has the additional benefits of educating and triggering the client for correct limb alignment during functional movement. Alternatively we can teach the client how to apply the tape themselves for regular use.
