Kinesio tape is an easy-to-use product that helps reduce pain and inflammation in muscles and joints. It works by gently lifting superficial tissue to improve circulation and reduce swelling as well as applying gentle pressure to the skin without causing damage.
Taping is a technique used by many professional athletes to prevent injury and improve performance. Kinesio tape was developed by Dr Kenso Kase, who used his own experiences with muscle soreness and injury to develop the first version of the product. He found that when he applied tape to his injured areas, it helped him recover faster than usual.
There are several reasons why people use tape. First, it helps keep joints stable during movement. Second, it reduces friction between two surfaces, such as skin and clothing. Third, it provides support for muscles and ligaments. Fourth, it protects against injuries. Finally, it allows athletes to perform at their peak level. Kinesio tape has been proven effective at treating a wide range of injuries, including neck pain, back pain, sprains, strains, and more. It works by applying pressure to the skin without causing any damage. This helps reduce inflammation and speed up recovery.
Kinesio tape is made with elastic material that wraps around the body. It provides support and compression to muscles and joints while also helping to relieve tension and stress.
Athletes should tape before an event to prevent injuries. Non-athletes should tape after a workout to reduce muscle soreness.
