Uses of Zinc Oxide Tape

Zinc oxide tape is also helpful in strapping joints like shoulders, knee, ankle or wrist to prevent injuries while playing sports. It is also used to support the muscles around previously injured joints. Zinc oxide tape restricts motion and creates a protective layer over the injured joint during the activity. It provides the same immobilization as a brace with an added advantage that it is very light in weight not as bulky as a brace. This is the reason why it is preferred by most athletes and sports professionals. Zinc oxide tape also offers targeted support to tendons and ligaments around a joint. It helps in faster recovery without restricting activity totally. Overstretched muscles can also be supported using zinc oxide tape. Another application of zinc oxide tape is as a secondary dressing for securing protective pads or dressings in place. Zinc oxide tape is not affected by humid conditions. It is used as a first aid measure in sports training centers and fitness institutes.
