Benefits with Kinesiology tape
When the tape is applied to your body, it recoils slightly, gently lifting your skin. It is believed that this helps to create a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath it.
- Creates space in the joints
Even though the increase in space is slight, it helps reduce the chance of joint irritation.
Changes signals on pain pathways
The kinesio tape changes the information your sensory nervous system is sending about pain and compression in your body. Studies show that trigger point pain was reduced and flexibility increased for people when kinesiology tape and manual pressure were used together.
Improves circulation of blood and fluids
If you’ve been injured, kinesiology tape might help improve circulation and reduce swelling in the area where you’re hurt.
Physical therapists use kinesiology taping as one part of an overall treatment plan for people who’ve been injured.
Supporting weak zones
Kinesiology tape is also used to add extra support to muscles or joints that need it. Unlike white medical or athletic tape, kinesiology tape lets you move normally. In fact, some studies show that it can enhance movement and endurance. Studies on athletes have shown that when kinesiology tape is used on fatigued muscles, performance improves.
Some athletes use kinesiology taping to help them achieve peak performance and protect against injury when they’re competing in special events.
