Pre-Competition Strapping Indications and Benefits

The principle behind pre-competition strapping is that the tape should provide support to a weakened part of the body, without limiting its function, by preventing movements which stress the weakened area.

One of the main indications and benefits of pre-competition strapping is to allow an athlete to remain active and participate in training and sport while injured.   This intervention can provide support for injured structures without compromising a healthy range of motion.  It compresses soft tissues to reduce swelling, support anatomical structures involved in the injury, serve as a splint or secure a splint, secure dressing or bandages, protect the injured joint from re-injury, and protect the injured part while the injured part is in the healing process.

"Janice Clarke has treated me many times. I find her approach very professional and knowledgeable. As a triathlete and windsurfer, I have suffered injuries to my legs, shoulders and lower back and these injuries have resulted in pain over the years. Janice has managed to locate the exact areas of the injuries and her treatment has improved my mobility and reduced the pain. I definitely recommend Janice as an excellent Soft Tissue Sport Therapist."

"I compete in triathlons and therefore have regular massage sessions with Janice. Janice is very professional and provides a beneficial sports massage but she also goes into depth and looks at body movements and prescribes exercises and stretches that will help in both healing of injuries and to better performance in the future. I can recommend Janice to anyone for her sports massage therapy services".

– Tonie Stahlfest

"As an ultra and trail runner I know I can rely on Janice, who is an athlete herself, for a sport's massage to help keep me running injury free. We also trust Janice to treat our running holiday guests. We know that she will offer everyone the same professional service and high level of care. Janice takes the time to give a thorough examination before massage, taking into account specific training loads and previous injuries. Janice is highly recommended for her 5-star treatment".
