What is Injury Taping & Strapping?
Kinesiology Tape has become exceedingly popular in both professional and amateur sports. It is often used during the acute stage of injury when it is not appropriate to use more invasive hands on therapy, or to continue the healing process outside of the treatment room. It can be applied to individual muscles or joints as the need requires.
The benefits are as follows:
- Improved lymphatic drainage
- Increased proprioceptive input to injured muscles
- Reduced pain levels
· Increased support without compromising flexibility or range of movement due to the tapes’ elasticity
· Lengthened treatment benefit as the tape is water resistant and lasts up to five days
