Kinesiology is based on the anatomical science of muscular and skeletal movement. It targets and treats affected areas in the connective tissue, joints, muscles and tendons. This holistic technology involves the simple application of a stretchy, therapeutic flexible tape that mimics the texture and elasticity of human skin. Kinesio Taping was developed as a pain management tool to balance bodily health, endurance and energy.
How does Kinesio Tape do all of this? It stabilizes the injured area by applying pressure to the tissues the tape is wrapped around. It allows the connective tissue surrounding the affected muscle or tendon to move along with the body and, in turn, offers support to muscles and eases points of tension.
When the tape is applied, it recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin away from the underlying tissue. This helps with pain but also allows for faster recovery as the stress is taken off that area of concern. It provides an increase in circulation and releases any muscular spasm, along with decreasing trigger points and knots.
This medical-grade hypoallergenic adhesive can stay put for three to five days, and being water-resistant means you can even wear it during workouts and in the shower. It can be applied to all areas of the body, including hamstrings, knees, shoulders and the back. It addresses such issues as pain, inflammation or stiffness.
Loved by athletes and those who enjoy sport and activities, Kinesio Taping moves with the body, allowing you to use your entire range of motion and compete at your optimum ability.
Kinesio Taping is often used to complement rehabilitation sessions with your physiotherapist. It can be applied and used during corrective exercises and movements or used before sporting events. Different tensions of application can be applied, to generate the appropriate amount of support needed to stabilize the affected area. Kinesio Taping should be applied by a professional to ensure it is done correctly as it can lead to disruption of another site leading to more tension and swelling.
