What is Kinesiotape?
Kinesiotape is a medical grade elastic tape used in conjunction with rehabilitative taping techniques. Kinesiotape is designed to provide support and stability to muscles and joints as well as reducing swelling.
When kinesiotape is applied, it lifts the skin just enough to allow by-products of inflammation to be removed from the affected area.
Kinesiotape can be applied anywhere on the body while still allowing full range of motion.
Different strengths, amount of stretch and specialized shapres are applied based on patient needs.
