If you pay attention to sports, you will have seen top level athletes in all types of sports with Kinesio Tape affixed to various parts of their body.
Kinesio Tape is not only for the professional athlete, it is used to reduce swelling and inflammation; relax tired and overused muscles, and to support muscle movement, in a natural way with full range of motion maintained.
The clinical technique of Kinesio Taping is based on the body’s own natural healing process. Kinesio Taping supports the body’s musculature which then allows for the free flow of circulation of all body processes that may be affected.
Kinesio Taping first came on the scene with Olympic Volleyball players, and the effectiveness of the technique quickly spread to other athletes. Today, Kinesio Taping is used by medical practitioners and athletes all over the world.
Kinesio Taping is used in many diagnostic situations, including, but not limited to: carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain; subluxations; knee problems; shoulder conditions; hamstrings, rotator cuff; groin, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis; edema; sprains among many others. It is also used to support muscles and protect them in a preventative way.
