is Kinesio taping?
Kinesio tape is based on kinesiology, the science of anatomy, physiology and
body mechanics. It is based on the idea that the body can heal itself, if
enabled with appropriate support. You might see it on the shoulders of Olympic
volleyball players or the calves of a suburban runner. The use of Kinesio tape
involves taping over muscles to minimize pain and inflammation, relax tired
muscles that are suffering from overuse and to support muscle movement. The
taping is non-restrictive and allows a full range of motion, critical for
athletes who are recovering from injury or seeking to avoid it. It must be
applied by a professional who is trained; you can apply it yourself if you have
been properly trained to do so and can reach and stretch the appropriate areas.
How does it work?
The tape, made with hypoallergenic acrylic glue, is manufactured to be the same
weight, thickness and elasticity as the skin and is therefore able to integrate
with the body's sensory system naturally. The goal is to help the muscles work
with proper biomechanics. In addition, the tape aids in proper blood flow and
lymphatic drainage, further rehabilitating damaged muscle or aiding in avoiding
