Kinesio (kinesiology) tape is a thin, stretchy therapeutic tape that can relieve pain, reduce swelling and inflammation, provide structural support to joints and muscles, and enhance athletic performance. While best known as a sports tape for injured athletes, it is also used extensively in healthcare settings to treat a wide variety of inflammatory conditions or to speed recovery after surgery. Unlike most athletic tape or medical tape that are non-elastic and restrictive, kinesiology tape is light, thin and flexible. With the same thickness and elasticity as human skin, it is comfortable and easy to wear. Most applications can be worn from 3-5 days, even through showering, swimming or intense exercise. The benefits of kinesiology taping include:

  • Relief of both acute and chronic pain
  • Reduction of inflammation, swelling, edema
  • Improved circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Reduced fatigue in overused muscles
  • Prevention/relief of cramps or spasms
  • Supports without restricting range of motion
  • Prolongs and enhances the benefit of other therapeutic modalities
  • Prevents overstretching or overcontraction of injured muscles
  • Restores strength to weak or injured muscles
  • Improves mobility/flexibility in injured areas
  • Enhances muscle tone in weak/poorly toned muscles
  • Provides therapeutic benefits 24/7 the entire time it’s worn
