What is Kinesio Taping?
Almost every athlete worldwide has come across this colourful and effective therapy.
It is a very flexible tape that is strategically placed for a specific outcome. The tape has a very special property whereby it bunches up the tissues ever so slightly to produce powerful effects. Typically the tape is applies over and near injury sites or sites to protect.
How does Kinesio taping work?
There are no chemicals involved in the treatment, all one has to do is to flip the tape over to see the magic. The tape has a very cleverly designed makeup that gives the tape very special properties.
The special design bunches up the tissues ever so slightly to help with circulation below the skins surface, this in turn promotes healing and decreases inflammation.
The slight bunching up the tissues helps to offload muscles, tendons, and ligaments therefore protecting these soft tissue structures and assisting their function.
