Cornerstones of Functional Elastic Taping

Cornerstones of functional elastic taping:

•    Taping over and around tissues in order to provide direct sensory input to the skin

•    Applying stretch to the tape or to the target area in order to stimulate the sensory nervous system

•    Affecting change in deeper layers of tissue by manipulating the skin

•    Utilizing a number of corrective techniques to encourage movement and joint function

•    Pain relief by targeting the pain and the source of the pain

•    Utilizes a variety of patterns and shapes to provide different sensory input to the skin and underlying tissues
