Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing processes. At the same time, the taping provides support to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
Kinesio tape is wearable and safe for people of all ages and successfully restores functionality to people recovering from a variety of musculoskeletal injuries.
For many years, the Institute of Sport Physiotherapy have used this treatment modality. Kinesio taping has the ability to reduce pain and inflammation in the body. It’s also used to enhance performance, promote good circulation and to retrain muscles.
There are a variety of theories about how kinesio taping works. Although the tape has been shown to improve the interaction between the skin, muscles and nervous system. This results in improved muscular activation and performance.
Additionally, kinesio tape inhibits nociceptors or pain pathways in the muscles, skin and joints. Kinesio tape helps to keep a balance in the neural circuitry of the muscles, joints, tendons and skin. It has a positive impact on scar tissue management and improves muscle performance and swelling.
