How Does Kinesiology Tape Work?
Kinesiology Tape alleviates
pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin.
The taped portion forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial
space. The result is that pressure and irritation are taken off the neural and
sensory receptors, alleviating pain. Pressure is gradually taken off the
lymphatic system, allowing it to drain more freely.
What Does Kinesiology Tape
Kinesiology Tape is applied
over and around muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or
tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24-hour-a-day basis. It is
not a restrictive type of taping and allows for full range of motion. In
contrast, traditional sports taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for
stabilization and support during an athletic event. Kinesio Tape is used to
treat anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in-between.
Examples include re- habilitation from sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome,
lower back strain/pain (subluxation, herniated disc), knee and shoulder
conditions, and many more.

How Is Kinesiology Tape Applied?
Without getting too
technical, the tape is applied over and around the affected area with the
muscles in a stretched position. Then the tape is applied from one end of the
muscle to the other with very little to no stretch on the tape. The tape is
applied from the ORIGIN to INSERTION of the muscle for SUPPORT and from
INSERTION to ORIGIN for REHAB.
What are some suggestions
for optimum taping results?
Skin should be dry and free
of oil, sweat, and lotion prior to application.
After application, rub the
tape to activate the heat-sensitive glue.
Avoid extreme stretching of
the tape during application to avoid skin irritation.
Apply approximately 1 hour
prior to activity or shower to allow glue to adhere properly.
Skin irritation is extremely
rare, but care should be taken with hypersensitive skin patients.
What is the difference
between the colours?
There is no physical or chemical difference between the colors in kinesio tape. The
colors were developed to be compatible with color therapy. Color choice is a
matter of individual preference. The colors can provide field advertising at
athletic events, a conversational opener, and instant product recognition.
