Sports Taping and 'Strapping' are used a lot in sport. Athletes like to use it especially on their ankles, knees and shoulders if they want to give a bit of extra support. It is used on a daily basis by professional athletes and amateur athletes. We would use taping to support joints, ligaments and muscles. Sometimes we might use it to offload them or to encourage the muscles or tendons to work so there are very different reasons to use taping but generally it is to support/brace a structure that has been injured.
