Taping of body parts in sports as means of preventing injury has been a mainstay in high-performance athletes as well as the occasional recreational practitioner. With each sport becoming more demanding and complex as our understanding of the human body and technology improves, the rate of injury increases as well. Taping can be an effective tool in reducing the chances of sustaining injuries, but only if it is applied in the appropriate way. The techniques described are based on anatomic and biomechanic principles and are presented in a systematic format as to ease their memorisation and application. The goal of this article is to demonstrate easy-to-perform taping techniques which can be applied by anyone.
