The neuromuscular bandage is an elastic therapeutic bandage used for a variety of disorders, especially sport injuries. The effect of the bandage depends on the use and application on the body.
It is an elastic bandage made of cotton which has the capacity of stretching a 140% of its original length. As a result, if the bandage is applied with maximum tension, it will go back to its original length once it sticks to the skin, causing traction on the skin and muscle.
The bandage is used to relax muscles after intense exercise and in rehabilitation to help the muscles with less strength. The wave pattern in the bandage has an effect of lifting on the skin which can reduce the inflammation and swelling, improving the circulation and reducing the pain by pressing on the over stimulated nociceptors.
