Kinesio Taping
Kinesio Taping method is applied over muscles to reduce pain & inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is not a restrictive type of taping, and allows for full range of motion. In contrast, traditional sports taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stabilization and support during a sporting event. Kinesio tape is used for a wide range of problems. Examples include: carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain, subluxations, herniated disc, knee conditions, shoulder conditions,sports injuries, etc.
Alleviate Pain, Enhanced Performance and Facilitate Rehabilitation
When an athlete suffers an injury, the outcome and implications are often more severe than for a normal person. Kinesio Taping is a new and effective treatment for muscle/joint dysfunction. The method is extensively used within America and Asia, and it is now being introduced to Europe. The method is ideal for physiotherapists, sports injury practitioners and lymphoedema specialists.
This new taping method is fundamentally different to other athletic taping techniques. Using a highly elastic and unique adhesive tape called Kinesio Tex, alongside specialist Kinesio Taping applications, the method gives muscles support, even during intense activity, without affecting circulation or range of motion. This key feature allow athletes to continue their training and sporting activities despite injury.
Kinesio Taping can also be applied so that it lifts the skin away from the fascia, forming convolutions and facilitating lymph flow 24 hours a day. This technique can be used to relieve pain and swelling.
Kinesio Taping in the USA has aided athletes such as Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong. At the 2004 Olympic Games, Kinesio Taping was used by the Olympic Village Physio Team to treat many athletes. In the UK, Kinesio Taping is being used in hospitals, clinics, universities, high schools, and by professional sports teams.
