What is Kinesio Taping?
The Kinesio Taping method was developed by Chiropractor Dr. Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago in Japan. Kinesio® Tape provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered in the athletic training room or physical therapy clinic. The results are increased fluid flow through an injured area, better control over muscle contractions, reduced pain, and ultimately faster healing. This effect is modulated and coordinated by the nervous system by specifically stimulating the sensory motor system.
This method has been made famous by athletes around the world and has many useful applications.
