What is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio Tape was first developed in Japan in the in 1979 by Dr. Kenzo Kase and has been in constant refinement ever since. The basic premise of Kinesio Tape is to allow the various layers of tissue around an injury to be lifted and create space for the healing process to advance unimpeded. This space creation allows fluids to enter & leave more easily and thereby increasing the rate of repair & allowing clients to return to their pre-injury state quicker.
There is also evidence that with the correct treatment protocols and application of Kinesio Tape that pain around any injury is also decreased.
