The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while giving support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Kinesio Tape provides extended soft tissue manipulation and prolongs the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. It has been successfully used to treat a variety of conditions such as sprains/strains, bruising and swelling.
Kinesio Tape is safe for populations ranging from kids to older adults. By targeting different receptors within the pain center of your brain, the tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by lifting the skin. This living affect forms convolutions or waves in the skin, increasing space and allowing for decreased inflammation.
Many professional athletes utilize Kinesio Tape because it allows them to get back into the game with less pain and in some cases more range of motion.
