Kinesio Taping®

Kinesio Taping®

Kinesio Taping® is a game-changing therapy aimed at providing support and stability to your joints without restricting circulation or range of motion. By gently lifting the skin, kinesio tape can facilitate lymphatic drainage, relieve pain, and reduce swelling. Kinesio Taping® can reduce muscle fatigue and spasm, prevent over-contraction or over-extension of muscles, improve the activation of weakened muscles, correct joint mechanics, promote post-surgical healing, and speed up injury rehabilitation. The strategic placement of kinesio tape and its efficacy in activating neurological and circulatory systems can also optimize sports performance. Kinesio tape is water-resistant and hypoallergenic and can be worn for days at a time without needing reapplication.

Kinesio Taping® FAQs

This therapy involving the strategic placement of kinesio tape can be used to address a number of conditions including:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Groin Injury
  • Hamstring Injury
  • Hip, Knee, And Ankle Pain
  • Patella Tracking
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Pre And Post-Surgical Edema
  • Rotator Cuff Injury
  • Shoulder Conditions
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Upper, Middle, Or Lower Back Pain
  • Whiplash
  • Muscular Facilitation Or Inhibition In Pediatric Patients

Because kinesio tape has a strong adhesion quality, it can be a little more difficult to remove than a standard bandage. A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • Kinesio tape can be removed more easily in the shower after thoroughly wetting the tape and lathering it with soap.
  • Baby oil that is allowed to soak into the tape for 15-20 minutes can ease removal.
  • Remove the kinesio tape in the direction of any hair growth (not against it) to avoid yanking out hairs.
  • Do not attempt to just quickly rip off kinesio tape to avoid pain. This could cause damage to your skin.

Most applications of Kinesio Taping® will last for 3-4 days. It is completely safe to leave your tape on for that long.
