Also known as KT Tape, The Kinesio® Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique that not only offers the support you are looking for, but simultaneously rehabilitates the underlying condition.
The use of Kinesio® Tex Tape provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual physical therapy administered within the clinical setting.
Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio® Tex Tape is safe for all ages, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.
In cases of injury or overuse, the muscle loses its elasticity. Kinesio® Tex Tape was created to mimic the elasticity of a healthy human muscle. Kinesiology taping not only stabilizes joints but can lift the skin microscopically, decreasing inflammation and pain of affected areas.
Kinesio® Tex Tape is used for:
- Alignment – Kinesio tape can bring the body back into alignment and help decrease joint pain.
