Joint Supports

Joint Supports

Joint supports play a role in both injury recovery and injury prevention and hence why there are different types. I’ll explain the difference and when and why you might need a joint support. Rehabilitation supports or braces limit movement of a joint to allow for optimum healing of muscle or ligament for injury recovery. Functional supports or braces allow for full movement while providing support for muscles and ligaments at high risk of injury for injury prevention.

Aussie Sharks take on World Lacrosse Champs

We've had a close eye on the Australian Men's Lacrosse team this year for the 2018 World Champs in Israel. What they've achieved is brilliant and we're extremely proud to be aligned with many of the brands they use to stay protected on and off the field. Below is a report from the team head coach Glenn Meredith: The Australian Men’s Lacrosse program just completed a World Championships in Israel against 46 other Countries which we ran 4th  and were a mere 2 goals away from a Bronze medal. This is a tremendous achievement when you consider the 3 teams above us and a few below us are all full of professional Lacrosse players from the U.S.A. so we are still the best amateur team in the World in 2018.

I’ll explain LP Support’s versions of Kinesiology tape, known as Maxtaping and Maxtaping A+ Kinesiology tape, in general, is designed to decrease pain and facilitate lymphatic draining by creating an effect of lifting the skin. The theory describes this effect to then enable more effective blood flow in and out of the area and the sensation of the tape on the skin affecting pain gate pathways. To create the effect, the tape is applied to the skin on stretch and allows for full range of movement without any restriction. LP support Maxtaping is 100% cotton which allows for vertical stretch only and comes in rolls, as per the traditional version of kinesiology tape and is commonly used by therapists and sports trainers. When applying Maxtape, have the body...
