Benefits of taping:

  • Competitive athletes:  Allows athletes to continue training and/or competing as their injuries heal
  • Improves neurological muscle activation, infants and young children with hypotonia, poor muscle tone that limits their ability to learn to sit up, crawl, etc.
  • The unique elastic properties of kinesio tape allow it to provide support to an injured muscle or joint, discouraging harmful movements while still allowing safe, healthy range of motion
  • The lifting action of the tape relieves pressure on pain receptors directly under the skin
  • Reduced pressure on the lymphatic drainage channels enhances the removal of fluids and other materials that collect in an injured area
  • Enhanced circulation to working muscles helps deliver oxygen and nutrients at the cellular level as well as accelerate the removal of waste products
  • Fatigued, overused muscles contain byproducts of exercise (such as lactic acid) that contribute to pain and stiffness and limit the ability to continue exercising.  When kinesio tape is used over these areas, enhanced removal of these byproducts allows for more rapid recovery
