How Does Kinesio Tape Work?

Kinesio Taping Method by Alleviation Therapeutic Taping Services

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

The Kinesio Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique not only offering support but also rehabilitating the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the body Kinesio Tape alleviates pain and facilitates movement and recovery.

The Kinesio Benefit

Kinesio Tape can be a valuable addition to any treatment protocol. It has been proven to have positive physiological effects on the skin, lymphatic and circulatory system, fascia, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints. It can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities and is effective during the rehabilitative and chronic phases on an injury as well as being used for preventative measures.

Kinesio Tape can be used in conjunction with other therapies, including cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, massage therapy, and electrical stimulation.
