Kinesiology Taping (commonly known as K-tape or Kinesio tape) is a rehabilitative technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered, such as massage therapy.
Kinesiology Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by slightly lifting the skin. This lifting affect assists with decreasing inflammation of the affected areas.
Using different shapes as well as the direction and amount of stretch placed on the tape at the time of application, Kinesiology Tape can be applied in quite a few ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, optimize performance, prevent injury, improve circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.
