Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique used to help promote healing whilst providing stability and support to muscles and joints. The technique is often used as part of a wider treatment helping to prolong the benefits of manual therapy once the patient leaves the clinical setting. The tape helps to promote the body’s natural healing process by increasing blood flow to the area and improving lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. Taping can also help to reduce pain in an area by affecting the nerve endings in the skin. The specially devised tape is able to provide support and stability to injured tissues whilst still allowing the full range of movement and function within the affected area.
