What is Kinesio Tape?
K-T tape is a popular type of tape that is used to help heal the body from acute painful conditions to chronic overuse conditions. It can be applied to basically any part of the body in any number of patterns.
Whether you’re training for your first marathon, getting ready for your next game, reaching a personal fitness goal, or just trying to get through the day, you already know that nothing slows you down faster than pain and injury. KT TAPE is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and can be used for hundreds of common injuries such as lower back pain, knee pain, shin splints, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow, just to name a few. It also provides 24 hour relief per application for days at a time through sweat, strain and humidity, and can even be worn in water.
In simple terms, it helps circulation, it helps support muscles and stimulates an accelerated healing response. If you are interested to see if you can benefit from Kinesio tape therapy, we would love to help.
