Kinesiology tape is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. Therapeutic kinesiology tape that can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, plus inflammatory conditions. Kinesiology tape is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows kinesio tape to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of your movement. Kinesiology tape is used for treating athletic injuries and a variety of physical disorders.

 

Summary of the Uses for Kinesiology Taping
 
  • Provides support for weak or injured muscles without affecting the normal ROM (Range Of Motion).  This allows full participation in therapeutic exercises and/or sports training and minimises the risk of developing compensatory imbalances or injuries.

  • Activates muscles that have been weakened after injury or sugery, improving the quality of contractions and speeding up the recovery process.

  • Stabilises the area without restricting the movement like conventional athletic tape.

  • The athlete and patient can remain active during the sport/activity.

  • Relaxes, and can offload, overused and overstrained muscles.

  • Assists the re-education of the neuromuscular system.

  • Accelerates blood flow to the injured area to speed up the healing process.

  • Helps to reduce pain.

  • Reduces oedema by removal of lymphatic fluid.

  • Can enhance athletic performance and endurance.

  • Corrects postural imbalance and improves ROM.

  • Inhibits muscles that are tight, fatigued or overused and allows them to relax.

  • Helps prevent injury.
