What is Kinesiology Taping? It is a rehabilitative taping 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. It’s Latex-free and wearable for days at a time. It can be for Athletes or anyone who experiences muscle tension or soreness.
Muscle Support: Kinesio tape supports the muscle’s ability to contract. This can relieve any pain or fatigue felt in the muscle and prevents cramping.
Joint Corrections: Using the tape properly will increase the range of motion in your joints and loosen your muscles.
Endogenous Analgesic System: There is no medicine or drugs in Kinesio tape. It instead works by allowing your body to heal itself, or like the wording itself suggests “endogenous” meaning something that is self-originating and “analgesic” meaning painkiller.
Allowing flow of body fluids: Kinesio tape promotes and improves blood and lymphatic circulation. This will reduce inflammation in your body’s tissue.
