How does the preparation of an overloaded wrist taping work?

Before you start taping the wrist you need to completely depilate the arm. In addition, the skin is clean and a good pair of scissors must be present. The tape will improve blood flow in the wrist and relieve pain. This leads to rapid recovery from any swelling and better stabilization in the wrist joint. Taping the wrist independently is a profession in itself. We therefore strongly recommend that you have this done by a physiotherapist. Do you intend to do this yourself? Then take a look below at how this works.

  4. To go from the back of your hand to your palm you need to make sure that you cut 2 holes in the tape for your waist and ring finger.
