KINESIOTAPING

Kinesiotape is made up of cotton and elastic fibers. The tape works in various ways that includes lifting the fascia and soft tissue above the area of pain which decreases the pain input from the sensory nerves in the area, providing sensory information to stimulate or limit motion, and providing positional stimulus for postural muscles through the skin, among others. 

 

Kinesiotaping can be effective in treating the following conditions:

  • Muscle imbalances

  • Postural insufficiency

  • Circulatory and lymphatic conditions

  • Ligament, tendon, and joint injuries

  • Fascial adhesions and scars

  • Pathological movement patterns

  • Neurological conditions
