Taping, Taping and more Taping…
Olympians, triathletes, volleyball players, and weekend warriors use kinesio tape and claim that it helps them perform. So what does the tape do for these athletes? The purpose of kinesiology tape is to improve circulation, support muscles, and help heal and prevent muscle injury. The tape allows freedom of the muscle to move creating circulation, which brings oxygen and nutrients to that area of the body being taped. This aids to speed up the healing process.
This tape was designed by Dr. Kenzo Kase, a Chiropractor and acupuncturist. He believed a flexible tape would create better circulation and would be less restrictive for the athlete.
Conditions of the body that would need the tape along with Chiropractic treatments include:
- Knee pain; medial knee pain due to a tight iliotibial band and patellar pain
- Low Back pain
- Trigger points in the neck and between the shouders
- Shoulders: Rotator Cuff pain or over usage of shoulder or postural improvement
- Ankles and feet to correct pronation or supination problems
- Areas of surgery to speed up recovery
The tape is a latex-free hypoallergenic cotton fiber material. The tape is sweat-proof so it holds strong during intense workout. It can get wet and can be worn in a pool and shower. The tape, when applied correctly, can last for three to five days.
