The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement. Examples of use are:

Hamstring & Groin Injury Plantar Fascitis Tennis Elbow
Rotator Cuff / Shoulder Knee Conditions Pre/Post Surgical Edema
Low Back Spasms/Strain Ankle Sprains Herniated Disc

Theoretically, KINESIO TEX (R) TAPE will lift the skin to increase the space between the skin and muscle. This reduced localized pressure helps promote circulation, lymphatic drainage, and lessens the irritation on the subcutaneous neural pain receptors. Thus, the Kinesio Taping Technique reduces pain, swelling and muscle spasm, and subsequently promotes the body's natural healing processes.Additionally, the built-in stretch of the TAPE supports fatigued, weakened and/or strained muscles.
