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

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


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


purpose anchors

form stable base of support for strapping application


purpose stirrups

direct support to an injured ligament


open basket weave

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


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


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


which j-strap controls prontation

regular j-strap

reverse j-strap is for ankle immobilization


purpose of closing up strips

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


purpose locks

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


indications for a louisiana heel lock

- excessive pronation
- ankle sprain/strain
- shin splints

stabilizes by limiting inversion/eversion


limits supination and pronation

calcaneal sling


indications for low-dye strapping

- pronation
- plantar fascial strain
- heel spurs


purpose achilles tendon taping

- assist with plantarflexion and restrict dorsiflexion


purpose peroneus longus taping

- assist plantarflexion and eversion
- limits dorsiflexion/inversion


purpose tibialis posterior tendon taping

- assist plantarflex and inversion
- limit dorsiflex and eversion


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


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


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
