Functional taping is a type of partial immobilisation technique used for tendon, muscle and ligament injuries. It is called "partial immobilisation", because the bandage slightly limits mobility in the direction of movement in which pain occurs or could aggravate the injury. It does, however, allow the remaining movements of the joint.
There are two main use cases for functional tapes:
Preventive: The sports tape is used in the absence of an injury with the intention to minimise the risk of it. Many athletes, for example, wear preventive functional bandages to avoid ankle injuries or sprains.
Therapeutic: The tape helps to to alleviate a pathology or injury, thus minimising pain and the risk of aggravation. At the same time, it allows the person to carry out their sporting activity in a "normal" way. One example is football players. When they suffer a sprained ankle, it is different from any non-professional athlete, who would be unable to walk for days. Footballers will usually want to play despite the injury. That’s why they will go out on the pitch wearing a functional bandage, limiting the mobility of the injured ankle and thus pain and possible worsening of the symptoms.
