We stock gold standard bandages for use in sports injury situations.
Cohesive and Elastic Types of Bandage
Cohesive Bandages perform better than conventional bandages for sports injuries. This is simply because they can stick to themselves. This means there is no need to stick the bandages to the skin or use a safety pin. Firstly, this increases their cost-effectiveness. It also gives the bandages greater strength when properly applied.
Elastic Bandages work through the use of elastic. They are usually created in the form of short-stretch bandages. These use the resistance of elastic to apply themselves on or around the injured area. You can find durable elastic bandage wrap in the Physioroom stock.
Apply a cohesive bandage with compression when it is necessary to compress the muscle that has been injured. A compression bandage squeezes the muscle, increasing local blood supply. This reduces swelling, relieving pain or discomfort. Cohesive Compression wraps can be used in conjunction with compression stockings. Together they can treat a sprained ankle or strain injuries. Seek professional advice for the application of compression bandages.
Cohesive Bandages for Sports Injury Treatment
Cohesive bandages stick to themselves and not your skin, hair or clothes. Perfect for taping all joints including ankles, shoulders, knees and wrists. They can also be used as a 'blood spill bandage' for head or blood vessel wounds. The lightweight non-woven design allows for excellent ventilation through the bandage. This flexibility allows the bandage to conform to even the most awkward body contours. As such, this ensures you will find this cohesive bandage comfortable to wear.
Cohesive bandage tape adheres to itself, meaning that under-wrap or pre-wrap is optional. Its high-quality manufacturing means it comes off the roll smoothly and conforms to the body part that is being taped. It is especially good for body parts that are normally difficult to tape.
Cotton cohesive bandage tape is ideal for absorbing blood and sweat. It can also be used to secure a tape job in order to provide support and increase proprioceptive awareness. This is achieved by giving sensory feedback to the brain that helps prevent the patient from 'going over' on the injured part.
