® gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and
range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and Pain Management.
Kinesio Taping® is a technique based on the body's own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping®
exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically
stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio". Muscles are not only attributed to the
movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc.
Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms. Consequently,
so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order
to activate the body's own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles
and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance.
The Kinesio Taping® is applied over muscles to reduce pain and
inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in
movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows
for full range of motion.
Examples of what Kinesio Tape can be used for are: muscular facilitation or
inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain
(subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions,
hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar
fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic
preventative injury method, and as a support method.
