Playing sports, working in the garden, tackling jobs around the house or doing things repetitively can all cause sprains and strains.
Sprains and strains are a common problem in many different sports, particularly those involving running, jumping or rapid changes of direction. Tubigrip’s excellent bi-directional pressure helps to reduce swelling and offers consistent support to the damaged tissue during exercise.
Gardening and DIY injuries
Every year, thousands of people get injured as a result of DIY and gardening. Some tasks may be strenuous and can exercise muscles that haven’t been used for a long time. Injuries can also occur from falling off ladders, slipping or tripping. Tubigrip supports the damaged tissue, while offering you complete freedom of movement.
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a general term used to describe pain caused to muscles, nerves and tendons by repetitive movement and overuse, such as working at a computer or manual work. The condition mainly affects parts of the upper body, including the forearm, elbow, wrist, hands, neck and shoulders. Tubigrip can be worn for added support, but if you think you may be suffering from RSI it’s important to consult your doctor.
