Kinesio Taping


WHAT IS KINESIO TAPE?

Kinesio Tape®, also called Kinesio Tex Tape, is the original elastic adhesive tape developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in 1979. Kinesio Tape is latex-free, hypoallergenic and wearable for days at a time. It is safe for everyone from elite athletes, general gym users through to medial patients.

HOW DOES KINESIO TAPING WORK?

Kinesio Tape alleviates discomfort and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation, reducing pressure while enabling a more effective flow of blood and lymphatic fluid in and out of the target area.

Based upon years of clinical use, Kinesio Tape is specifically applied to the patient based upon their needs after evaluation. The findings of the clinical evaluation or assessment dictate the specifics of the Kinesio Tape application and other possible treatments or modalities. With the utilization of single “I” strips or modifications in the shape of an “X”, “Y” or other specialized shapes as well as the direction and amount of stretch placed on the tape at time of application, Kinesio Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce inflammation, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.


EVERY DAY USE

FOR WORK, FOR LIFE, FOR PLAY

Although originally developed for medical use in things such as Lymphedema, for many years Kinesio Taping has assisted individuals of all ages to find comfort in their daily activities.

Kinesio is widely used for general day to day functions to help office workers, bus drivers and other working professionals with the day to day repetitive strains within the neck, back and hands caused by long hours at computer desks or in a seated position. Whatever your ache or pain whether it starts in the foot or in the neck Kinesio Taping can be the difference between getting up ready for your day ahead or getting up dreading your day ahead.
