- Tape has been a popular tool for many years
In the past 10 years, we started to see Kinesiotape becoming more common. We saw our favorite athletes and people at the gym wearing tape on ankles, shoulders, or knees. Kinesiotape is not just a fad, it is here to stick. But what does it do?
There are many different types of taping, both for athletes and everyday support. Flexible, stretchy tape, such as Kinesiotape, is used to support structures, activate muscles, or turn off overactive muscles. Rigid tape such as McConnel/Mulligan tape is used for mechanical correction.
- Kinesiotape is very beneficial
Swelling, muscel and joint injury, instability, pain, bruising get better with taping. Furthermore, tapign helps activate muscels, reduce fatigue, increase motion, and assist tissue recovery.
- How to do it?
Strips of tape are cut into different shapes, such as I’s, Y’s, X’s, and fans. These strips are applied to clean, dry skin in with a specific amount of tension or pull in a certain direction.
- What we use it for?
