Taping – Sports Medicine Boston

Running Evaluations With Video Analysis - Boston, MA

Taping is not a long-term solution, but rather a temporary one until a patient can transition to a brace or to a point when external support is no longer needed. Taping will create joint awareness by bringing the patient’s attention to the taped area.

Please see Dr. Merson’s blog on taping.
