Are your injuries limiting what you can do on the court or field? Does your pain get in the way of competing? At Forward Physical Therapy in Knoxville, TN, we work with athletes using the most advanced techniques, including sports taping, to help you recover and get back in the game!
Injuries are a part of playing sports, but it’s time to use every resource to resolve the issue when they interfere with your normal activities. Sports taping is also known as kinesiology taping. It involves using special tape to help reduce your pain and improve your mobility while simultaneously supporting your joints, muscles, and tendons.
Whether you strained your muscles training or even working around the home, our physical therapists at Forward Physical Therapy in Knoxville, TN will help resolve your pain and get you competing in the sport you love!
What is sports tape used for?
All types of sports taping are used to facilitate your motion and inhibit your pain. The tape is made of a flexible material that allows you to move freely.
Sports tape is used with athletes to improve the components of sports performance, including:
- Proprioception (i.e., static and dynamic balance)
- Jumping ability (vertical and horizontal)
- Speed and agility
Sports tape is also used as an adjunct to treating sports, and non-sports injuries, like:
- Ankle sprains
- Runner’s knee
- Hamstring pulls
- Calf/Achilles strains
- Rotator cuff problems
- Back pain
Sports tape is used to help alleviate pain so you can get back to living your everyday active life!
What to expect at your physical therapy session
At your initial appointment, your physical therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation to identify all the factors that may be contributing to the injury. This will help determine whether sports taping will be an effective treatment for you.
Our team will guide you through your treatment plan using targeted stretches, mobility work, strengthening, and pain relief techniques to help you feel better. We will then incorporate a return to sport progression to assist you in a safe return to the sport you love!
