Kinesiology Taping

Chances are, you have seen or used kinesiology tape. It has been popularized in the 2008 Beijing summer olympics where athletes are constantly looking for an edge against their competition. While the use of kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams, Kerri Walsh, and Lance armstrong, the reality is that it is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.

 

How does kinesiology tape work?

Kinesiology tape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons to provide a lightweight, strong, external support that helps to prevent injury and speed recovery without restricting your movement. Kinesiology tape  lifts the skin away from the soft tissue underneath, increasing blood flow and accelerate healing and recovery.
