Therapeutic Taping in Physiotherapy: Therapeutic taping is a technique used by physiotherapists to provide support and stability to muscles and joints, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. It is commonly used in the treatment of sports injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, and postural issues. Therapeutic taping can complement other physiotherapy modalities and is often integrated into comprehensive treatment plans to enhance recovery and improve functional outcomes for patients.
