Kinesio Taping is a flexible tape that provided stability and support to joints and muscles without restricting range of motion. Kinesio Taping activates the neurological and circulatory systems of the body and supports the body’s own natural healing process. Traditional sports’ taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event obstructing the flow of bodily fluids and this has undesirable side effects. Kinesiotape supports normal muscle function and, by extension, better circulation.
Kinesio Tape is used to treat many ailments including muscular facilitation or inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (spinal misalignment causing nervous system interference, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, and ankle sprains.
