Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for preventative maintenance, edema and to treat pain.
Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. Kinesio Taping exhibits its effectiveness through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio". Muscles not only move the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flow.
The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24 hr/day basis. It is a non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion.
Kinesio Tape is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between. Examples include: muscular facilitation or inhibitions in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff surgery, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic preventative injury method, and as a support method.
