Kinesiotaping® is a taping technique that gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation or restricting range of motion. It is also used to prevent injury, help clear inflammation, and treat pain.
Kinesiotaping® is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. Kinesiotaping® exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. The function of muscles is not only to move the body, but is also responsible for controlling the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.
Kinesiotaping can significantly speed the rehabilitation process by reducing pain and improving stability and tolerance to exercise fatigue in over-used muscles. Kinesiotaping® helps to improve contraction of weakened muscles, re-educates muscles through sensory feedback, and relieves pain by activation of the natural analgesic system in our skin receptors.
This technique can be used to treat, but not limited to:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Low back pain
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Hamstring injuries
- Elbow strains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Patella tracking
- Pre and post surgical edema
- Ankle sprains
- Athletic preventative injuries
