Taping and bracing

 

Taping techniques and various braces can be used to protect an injured joint or body region whilst it is healing. We can assist you in what is most suitable for your condition. Taping and bracing can also be used as protection for a recent or a previously injured joint during sport or work activity. For example, ankle taping techniques have been found to reduce the incidence of ankle sprains during sport. We have a wide range of braces which can be purchased or hired to you on a weekly basis.

 

Most fractures require a period of immobilization, often about 6 weeks. These are usually either plaster or synthetic. Modern synthetic casts are both stronger, and most importantly lighter, than the old Plaster of Paris casts. In addition, modern waterproof lining under a synthetic cast makes the cast completely waterproof. This allows the patient to shower or even swim whilst in the cast. We stock a variety of casting materials and our physiotherapists are trained in the application of these casts.
