Kinesio Taping Method

Kinesio Taping is a definitive rehabilitation taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Kinesio taping also provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.

Kinesiology tape is applied on top of an injured or strained muscle to stabilize the area. As you move, the tape, skin and connective tissue over the muscle or tendon also moves, pulling slightly away from the muscle and creating space for lymphatic fluid to flow around and cleanse the inflamed tissue.

There are three main goals to the Kinesio Taping method:

  • Supporting the muscle- Proper taping improves the muscle’s ability to contract even when it’s weakened, reduces a feeling of pain and fatigue, and protects the muscle from cramping.
  • Removing congestion to the flow of body fluids– Kinesiology tape improves blood and lymphatic circulation and reduces inflammation and excess chemical buildup in the muscle tissue.
  • Correcting joint problems– The goal is improving range of motion and adjusting misalignments that result from tightened muscles.
