Thousands of chiropractic physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, certified athletic trainers, massage therapists, and medical doctors, have recognized and embraced the safe, effective, and easy to use functionalities of Kinesio tape.
Kinesiology tapes can be used as therapy for multiple afflictions and there’s a ’roll’ of reasons why these tapes really are worth the hype!
For starters, millions of us suffer from neck and lower back pain thanks to poor posture and not so good habits, the pain isn’t excruciating till it is and that's where the Kinesio tape comes in - it effectively reduces pain by relieving pressure on the affected area.
Kinesio tape is also beneficial for hemiplegic shoulder pain and tennis elbow - easing the pain while muscles heal.
Swelling and inflammation experienced post-surgery or due to inflammatory ailments are no match to this medical tape as it reduces pressure on the lymphatic system, removing fluid from the tissues and reduces pressure which helps the body drain fluids like lactic acid that often builds up in affected areas.
Kinesio Taping enhances blood flow and the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the affected area, allowing overused muscles to heal rapidly which makes it beneficial for people with carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, rotator impingement, and other such conditions.
One of the most important benefits of Kinesio taping is that it comes with no side effects which are highly common with prescription drugs. Kinesio provides support with zero restriction to the muscle’s range of motion, which makes it easy to continue being active without the worry of over-stretching your injured muscles. The tape can also be worn all day - its therapeutic benefits last for days on a single application.
