Kinesio Tape can be used in treating orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and medical conditions.
Kinesio Taping Method (KTM) provides support and stability to muscles. Based on kinesiology, the tape has the elasticity, adherence and breathability to allow the body’s natural range of motion and support the healing process and good circulation.
Kinesio Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique that offers patients and athletes the support they need to get through their daily activity or sports event, while helping to rehabilitate conditions and injuries. KTM involves the application of a special nonrestrictive tape over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles and support muscles in movement. It has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory system, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints.
Not only on athletes, Kinesio Taping may be used on populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric to treat virtually any clinical condition. Even people who drive long distances or sit at a desk all day, for example, stand to benefit from Kinesio Taping. The tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to rework the neuromuscular system, enhance performance, prevent injury, promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to optimal functionality.
