Kinesio Taping is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
It involves taping over and around muscles in order to assist and give support or to prevent over-contraction. There are a couple of techniques a practitioner can use; the first provides support while still allowing full range of motion. This enables the individual to participate in normal physical activities with functional assistance.
Another technique, which is generally used in the acute stage of rehabilitation, helps prevent overuse or over-contraction and helps provide facilitation of lymph flow for an entire 24 hour period.
Kinesio Taping can be used in conjunction with other therapies, such as massage. It is used to successfully treat a variety of orthopaedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions. Both Kinesio® Tex Tape and the training protocol have shown results that would have been unheard of using older methods and materials.
