    Morbus server heel pain

    Sever’s disease usually presents with increased tension in the calf muscles (triceps surae). The first tape relieves tension in the triceps surae, placing the stress on the soleus. At the same time, the tape under the foot promotes circulation in the region of the fascia plantaris. Thanks to the ligament technique used, the two smaller tapes create space under the heel bone (calcaneus), which results in pain relief and return of function.

    Shoulder impingement syndrome

    In impingement syndrome the pain is greatest at an arm elevation of 90° and decreases once the arm is completely raised. This tape combination with CureTape provides direct pain relief which results in improved arm mobility. The first tape relieves tension in the subscapularis muscle. The subscapularis muscle rotates the upper arm (humerus) inwards (internal rotation). The second tape relieves tension in the descending part of the trapezius muscle. This muscle lifts the scapula along the rib cage (elevation). The last tape facilitates contraction of the ascending part of the trapezius muscle, which allows the shoulder to move downwards (depression).

    Knee complaints

    1. Knee arthrosis, instability and sprained or torn knee ligaments On the lateral side one ligament tape is applied. On the medial side of the knee two ligament tapes are crossed over each other with the knee slightly bent, because anatomically the ligament fibres cross each other here. The tape combination provides a sense of stability and pain relief in patients with knee arthrosis and knee ligament injuries after a sprain (dislocation of the knee). 2. Pain and limitation of knee movement (chondropathy) The cartilage underneath the kneecap can be damaged by joint injuries or overuse. Pain and limitation of movement are the consequences. The first tape stimulates the fascia around the patella. For additional stability and functional improvement or pain relief, a second tape can be placed. 3. The knee in plica syndrome (synovial plica syndrome) or fluid in the knee A plica is a fold in the synovial capsule that can become inflamed. The pain is on the inside of the knee and is worse on bending and stretching. This tape application can also be used for fluid in the knee. Apply the tape with very little stretch since it must not influence freedom of movement.

    Shin splints or medial tibial stress syndrome

    Shin splints is an injury attributed to the overloading of the shin bone. It is a periosteal inflammation of the tibialis posterior and/or the soleus muscle(s). Circulation is insufficient, so that waste materials can accumulate in the tissue. On palpation there is a painful area. The complaints can worsen so that pain can be present continuously during sport. The application of the first tape depends on the individual situation and particularly whether the tibialis posterior or the soleus muscle must be influenced by the tape at the tibial edge. For both fascia tapes, the division of the two strips must be placed at the painful point.
