Kinesio taping gives support and stability to your muscles and joints without affecting circulation or range of motion. Kinesio taping is a theraputic system of taping in which a specialized elastic tape is applied over and around muscles and joints to reduce pain and inflammation. It has the ability to relax tired, overused muscles and to support muscles in movement on a 24 hour a day basis.
Three functions of Kinesio Taping:
- Provide stability to joints by holding adjacent bones together utilizing the tape's elastic strength.
- Support the functions of muscles until they can be strengthened through sport specific rehabilitation.
- Encourage the flow of fluid under the skin to reduce pain, swelling and bruising.
Kinesio Taping can be used from headaches to foot problems, including:
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- low back pain
- knee conditions
- shoulder conditions
- hamstring injuries
- groin injury
- rotator cuff injury
- tennis elbow
- plantar fasciitis
- patella tracking
- ankle sprains
- and more...
