What do you guys think is better.....

I've been taping because I felt like it gave me better support then a brace...maybee my feel is wrong but Taping seems better to me.

While there is some controversy on this subject, the popular opinion is that taping enhances the "proprioceptive amplification ratio." In plain English, this means that post-injury, taping has been found to induce less loss of proprioception than bracing.

I've dealt with many of my own sports injuries during my playing days, and now deal with many with my players. Where possible, we always tape. I think it provides better support, conforms better to the injured area, and has less chance of slipping away from the injured area as compared to bracing.

He thanks guys!! I tried on some braces level 2 and I was like why pay 30 bucks or more for this when tape gives me better support...I really appreciate the advice and expertise!
