Kinesio Taping is a new physiotherapy technique. It is designed to facilitate natural healing processes, while also offering superior support and stability to injured areas or joints. At the same time, it does not hinder or limit the range of motion, making it an excellent choice for people who move around a lot.
Taping is used in conjunction with other strategies, such as manual therapy and heat treatment. The tape is latex-free and wearable, designed for use in any age group. It has seen use in treating some orthopaedic, neuromuscular, and neurological conditions.
The tape and therapy target receptors in the body, alleviating pain. The system also stimulates the nerves and triggers lymphatic drainage. This action also lifts the skin, which can decrease inflammation in certain conditions.
Other benefits include improved circulation and healing, as well as the reduction in pain and optimisation of performance.
Taping is often suggested for dealing with lymphatic and some circulatory problems. It also helps with problems tied to the fascia, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Kinesio taping is never used alone but in conjunction with other treatments.
