As part of my therapies, I use Kinesiotape Therapy which can have positive vascular, mechanical and neurological effects. Its functions begin by encouraging the lymphatic fluid to move from areas of high pressure to low pressure, hence avoiding swelling and pain. Taping helps improve the body’s natural healing process by providing stimulation, strength and support to muscles, fascia and joints. When applied, the tape offers additional support and influences soft tissue and nerves. This combination is what gives Kinesiology tape its pain relieving quality. When used in a sporting event, Kinesiology taping helps to enhance performance by boosting blood flow, providing support, increasing or decreasing stimulus to muscles and fascia. In addition, it also helps rehabilitate painful conditions such as lower back strain/pain, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, knee pain, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre and post surgical edema, ankle sprains, shoulder impingement and shin splints.
