Megan has also trained in TAPING.
Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. Indeed, it provides support for overused tired muscles in a non-restrictive way, allowing full range of motion without affecting the flow of fluids.
Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process by activating the neurological and circulatory systems. Muscles are not only involved with movement of the body but they control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Muscles not working properly have far reaching implications so it is no surprise that their failure to work as they should, causes various kinds of symptoms.
Thus it makes sense to treat the muscles in order to activate the body’s own healing processes. Using tape, damaged tissues can be helped by outside assistance!
Obvious uses involve improving muscle strength, providing joint support in healing or when about to use them in an athletic activity e.g. throwing a javelin.
This is different to traditional sports’ taping which is used to stabilise a joint say during a football match. The problem with this is the obstructing of the flow of body fluids. This is not good.
Taping can be used for foot problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain, knee conditions, shoulder pain, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, compression in swollen conditions, ankle sprains, athletic preventative injury method, and as a support method. It also helps in proprioception, the body’s way of telling the brain where it is in space. It is the lack of proprioception that leads to many injuries.
