Treat sports injuries with Kinesiology taping to improve sporting performance, help prevent further injury and allow you to return to playing sport much quicker. Read more about how it can benefit you below:
Kinesiology tape seen as an elastic, slim cotton strip with a painted adhesive, therapeutic tape can be advantageous in supporting inflammatory conditions, as well as various sports and musculoskeletal injuries.
Kinesiology tape is similar to skin in terms of elasticity and thickness. As such, it can be worn without constricting, binding or limiting your range of motion. You might have seen professional athletes wearing kinesiology tape to prevent injuries and improve their sporting performance.
Kinesiology tape is used to treat athletic wounds and other physical damages. For about 10 years after its debut, it was mostly used by Japanese practitioners. By 1988, professional athletes around the world, including Japanese Olympians were making use of the therapeutic tape.
In order to obtain the intended results from using it, a complete physical examination from a medical professional is required. In some instances, the assessment of a condition might include:
- range of motion testing,
- manual muscle testing,
- gait assessment,
- other necessary orthopedic assessments.
The data acquired from an assessment will determine the appropriate treatment protocol to be administered.
Kinesiology tape can be a priceless extension to this protocol. It has been shown to have helpful physiological effects on the circulatory and lymphatic and system, skin, muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and joints. It can be used in association with numerous other modalities and treatments inside of a clinic. It is also efficient during the chronic and rehabilitative phases of an injury, and can be useful for preventative measures.
