Follow the steps of how to tape a shoulder for sport.
Titled myPhysioSA Sports Physiotherapist and current Adelaide Football Club Physiotherapist, Rohan Hattotuwa, demonstrates and gives tips/advice on the correct way to give support to a shoulder that has instability or is recovering from a dislocation or ligament damage or other shoulder injury.
Watch Rohan as he tapes a shoulder step by step, starting from where to put the anchors, what type of tape is best to use, and how to test that your taping is going to be effective.
Shoulder taping is one of the trickiest to do correctly and if done wrong it can be quite difficult for an athlete to tolerate. The shoulder needs to still be functional, and have enough movement to be able to play sport. So getting the tension correct and not inhibiting the movement they need can take practise.
