What is Kinesiotaping?
Kinesiotaping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process without affecting circulation whilst allowing support and stability to muscles and joints, without restricting the body’s range of motion. The taping targets different receptors which is found by reducing pain. Therefore, correct application of the of the k-tape helps alleviate pain and encourages facilitation of lymphatic drainage by minimal lifting of the skin, which helps decreases the inflammatory process.
Kinesiotaping is very safe for all age ranges. It is a therapeutic taping so that the patient/athlete can participate in activity with their present condition throughout rehabilitation period or daily tasks. With all methods of taping there are precautions and contraindications but your therapist will consult with you before application.
