Kinesiology Taping utilises a stretchy adhesive tape over the skin as a therapeutic modality to encourage the body’s own healing process.
Some of its many functions:
- Can help with supporting muscles: can improve muscle contraction in a weakened muscle, can reduce muscle fatigue and excessive extension and contraction of the muscle. It can improve the ranges of motion in the muscle and relieves pain.
- Can assist with removing congestion of body fluids: By laying the tape on the skin it can improve lymphatic flow and subcutaneous blood flow thereby reducing inflammation and pain.
- Can assist in correcting joint problems: may assist in normalising muscle tone and abnormal fascia in joints, improving ranges of motion and relieving pain.
