Strapping is an effective way to stimulate mechanoreceptors – proprioception. Strapping can be used as injury prevention or as a viable short term treatment method.
Strapping techniques should be used in conjunction with other conservative treatment modalities e.g. stretching, strengthening, mobilisation, orthotic therapy and injections. Strapping is common for heel pain (plantar fasciitis, severs), ankle stability, and knee pain (patella-femoral pain, os-good schlatters disease).
