Flashcards in 8: Taping, Padding and Strapping- Bennett Deck (19)
1

elastoplast properties (Adhesive elastic tape)

- offers elasticity and adhesion
- maintain compression over contusion
- allow maximal pressure on strain
- strong recoil
- unravels at edges
- does not adhere well

2

sprain indications for taping as form of adjunct tx

= injury to ligamentous structure

stage I (fiber damage with little or no soft tissue elongation) or II (partial tear causing moderate to major stretch) only

3

purpose anchors

form stable base of support for strapping application

4

purpose stirrups

direct support to an injured ligament

5

open basket weave

provides support while allowing room for expansion due to swelling (acute injuries)

6

closed basket weave/gibney

- support ankle with special emphasis to LATERAL ligaments w/o restriction of mobility
- prevents inversion an eversion of ankle, allow plantar/dorsiflexion

7

purpose compression straps

- provide strong compressive forces to injured area
- minimize subsequent swelling
- prevent further injury to affected area w/o compromising circulation
- permit activity

8

which j-strap controls prontation

regular j-strap

reverse j-strap is for ankle immobilization

9

purpose of closing up strips

- reduce blister formation
- cosmetic appearance
- prevent unraveling during activity

10

purpose locks

reinforce joint stability but also allow protection and function of associated jt

11

indications for a louisiana heel lock

- excessive pronation
- ankle sprain/strain
- shin splints

stabilizes by limiting inversion/eversion

12

limits supination and pronation

calcaneal sling

13

indications for low-dye strapping

- pronation
- plantar fascial strain
- heel spurs

14

purpose achilles tendon taping

- assist with plantarflexion and restrict dorsiflexion

15

purpose peroneus longus taping

- assist plantarflexion and eversion
- limits dorsiflexion/inversion

16

purpose tibialis posterior tendon taping

- assist plantarflex and inversion
- limit dorsiflex and eversion

17

what would you do for deltoid ligament sprain or lateral ankel sprian?

- anchor
- lateral and medial stirrups
- ankle lock for reinforcement
- stabilization with fig 8
- close for compression

18

kinesio taping v. traditional athletic tape

has ability to stretch to 140% its original length in comparison to traditional athletic tape

faster performance times with KT and AT compared to non-taped
standing heel rise and vertical jump test decreased with athletic tape

19

benefits kinesiotaping

- helps alignment and function of m
- facilitate circualtion of blood flow and lymphatics to injured structures
- decrease pressure to pain receptor
- enhance ability of mechanoreceptor
- facilitate better joint motion
