JUNE 2013 = KINESIOLOGY TAPE

You would have seen in the 2012 London Olympics, the large number of athletes using Kinesiology Taping to help them manage pre-existing injuries and enhances sport performance. Unlike the normal rigid strapping tape that restricts joint movement to provide stability, Kinesiology Tape stretches with the body to:

  • Improve circulation – decreases swelling, bruising and  provides a quicker removal of the body toxin lactic acid.
  • Provide injury prevention and management – specific taping methods can support muscles to reduce the risk of injury while providing biofeedback to the body’s neurological system.

Kinesiology Tape works by gently lifting the skin, creating a gap between the skin and the tissues below and its results are most notable in swelling and bruising applications. (see pictures below)

In our practice we use the brands; “RockTape” and “Kinesio Tape”.
