Bandages are very frequently used nursing procedures in traumatology and physiotherapy that, despite seeming easy to perform, require a specific technique and knowledge to be carried out correctly.

Functional bandaging is a specific technique that combines anatomy and biomechanics and allows selectively limiting movement in the area where the pain appears. In other words, it will improve the injury or ailment of the area to be treated without paralyzing its functioning.

The technique of functional bandages helps to reduce tension in tendons, ligaments and joints, as well as to maintain the injured areas or structures in a relaxed position, avoiding total immobilization.

Given the different types of bandages and the differences between their applications and results, it is very important to choose the correct bandage, knowing the injury correctly.
