Sports tape is designed to stay on for the duration of the sport and then it should be removed. Care must be taken when taping, especially when encircling an area of the body as the blood and nerve supplies can be compromised (see below). Always get feedback from the individual, check for signs of a compromised blood supply and ask appropriate questions for a compromised nerve supply. When support is needed for longer periods, one should select the appropriate materials and techniques and warn the individual of what to be aware of and to remove the tape and seek advice if they are unsure.
