In spite of the great advances in medicine, traumatology and imaging techniques (RX, MRI, CAT, Ultrasound), all of them very important, the diagnostic method decays more and more and more information brings us: the clinical exploration.
A systematic and adequate clinical exploration provides us with a lot of information about the tissue of affection (hueso, muscle, ligament, capsule, nerve…).
Concise questions about the pain, the location, the description of the movement, together with an inspection and exploration of the joints and muscles will give us an accurate diagnosis and the affected structure, and the approach to treatment.
At one time we will mix and fit the most suitable bandages according to the structure it affects and the objective according to the injury.
The functional bandage is a very recurrent technique that, by means of the sale, seeks to limit or contain the articulation with the objective of canceling or limiting the movement that produces pain and makes compression of the area by moderating the inflammation.
For it is essential a diagnosis, knowledge of the anatomy and the joint biomechanics.
The goals of the sale are to control the pain, limit the damaged structure, favor recovery by giving stability and allow mobility without damage, which will benefit us to avoid the muscle atrophy that occurs with more rigid fixations.
At the same time it also takes on importance in the prevention of the injury, in the movement of the training and competition with the objective of minimizing the relapse of the injury.
The applications of the bandages are much different depending on the structure it affects and depending on the evolution of the injury.
In 2007 it appeared in the elite of sports and neuromuscular bandages or kinesiotaping, with a multitude of applications according to objective or area to be treated.
The neuromuscular bandage allows us to normalize joint and muscle functioning and regulate lymphatic function.
It is a bandage that can be applied to any muscle that according to direction and tension we can achieve that the muscle relaxes to give activation stimulus.
It can also be applied in joint, ligament, tendon and with very good results in postural correction and lymphatic drainage techniques.
Taping and kinesiotaping are very useful and essential in sport
