The main purpose of strapping any part of the body is to prevent injury, or to provide support for an existing injury. Taping a joint makes this possible as it restricts movement, while providing support for tendons and ligaments.The aim of taping is to limit unwanted movement at joint or offloading specific anatomical structures where a weakness has been identified.
