How Does Kinesiology Tape Work?
The unique design of the tape’s weave allows it to influence the muscles underneath. The patients affected muscle or tendon gets unrestricted access to blood flow. It works by supporting the underlying structure, while assisting muscle repair and still giving firm but flexible support to the injured area. The cotton material allows air to pass through to the skin. Doctors help to normalise the muscle tone to the affected area by strategically targeting specific muscle groups using therapeutic tape. The therapeutic tape’s cotton base and non-toxic adhesive is washable and latex free. They can often be worn up to three days and removes easily without leaving marks or stains. To get the full benefit of its use, a qualified therapist teaches the patient the proper technique for applying or reapplying therapeutic tape.
K-Active Kinesio tape can be purchased directly from Sports Pain web-site where you will find additional information on the product and videos demonstrating K-Active tape application.
