Kinesio Tape is a favorite product amongst therapists (Occupational, Physical, and Speech) as well as chiropractors, massage therapists, and athletic trainers. The elasticity of this Tape is an important feature because it allows for movement, just like your muscles. It provides support, but still permits full range of motion to be achieved. Kinesio Tape can be used in many ways including normalizing muscle function, improving blood and lymphatic flow, pain reduction, addressing joint alignment, and to improve proprioception.
Simple knowledge of anatomy together with the understanding of muscle origin and insertion is needed when taping for activation or relaxation of a muscle or muscle group. Also, understanding of the lymphatic system will help with application for lymph drainage or swelling. Kinesio Tape is a wonderful modality that leaves lasting effects on the individual after their therapy session is completed. Kinesio Tape can help with many areas of the body and promotes a natural healing process.
