Kinesiotape Therapy

KINESIO TAPING

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive 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.

It also provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy when administered within the clinical setting.

 

 

How Does Kinesio Tape® Work?

  • Creates a lifting effect on the skin’s surface for
    circulation and relieves pain.
  • Applying different amounts of direction/tension will
    relax/stimulate the muscles.
  • The distinctive wave-pattern weaves with your
    movements.
  • Will not limit your range of motion.

US Beach Volleyball player Kerri Walsh uses kinesio tape during the 2008 Olympics.
