Kinesio-taping is a well known way of supporting joints and body postures subtly but strongly. The tape is not rigid or harsh but flexible, allowing ease of supported movement after its application.
Kinesiology tape can be used to help patients recover from musculoskeletal problems or injury. The Kinesio Taping® Method is a therapeutic taping technique which alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin increasing interstitial space and allowing for decreased inflammation in affected areas. Based upon research and years of clinical use, The Kinesio® Taping Method specifically applies Kinesio tape based on evaluation and assessment to dictate a specific application.
You may be used to seeing it in the sporting arena but an application of tape following a treatment session (as well as taping in its own right) will allow better results as your body is gently reminded to return to form and fitness.
