Kinesio tape lifts your skin gently, which permits blood and lymph to flow more easily underneath the treated area. This reduces swelling and pain. Its unique design simulates human skin in thickness and weight. It stretches, unlike most conventional athletic tape.
Kinesio tape functions to move with the muscles; not restrict them. Kinesio tape is also heat activated and quite durable. It is typically worn for 3-4 days. It is made from high-grade cotton, so it breathes well, and it’s latex-free for sensitive skin.
Because Kinesio tape supports muscle, it helps improve muscle contraction in weak muscles. It reduces muscle fatigue and prevents excessive exertion, contraction and cramping, while simultaneously increasing range of motion. Kinesio tape improves blood and lymphatic circulation and reduces excess heat in the injured tissues. Kinesio tape can be an important part of any treatment protocol.
