You’ve seen professional athletes with brightly-colored tape crisscrossing parts of their body. This isn’t just flair or showmanship! Kinesio taping helps increase blood flow and oxygen, and aids lymph drainage. The result is a reduction in the amount of lactic acid that builds up in muscles, helping the affected areas heal more quickly.
Of course, professional athletes aren’t the only people that can benefit from kinesio tape applications. Kinesiology tape is great for treating common sports injuries like shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and runner’s knee. We’ve used kinesio taping to help lots of patients with tennis and golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff injuries, posture correction, and groin and hamstring pulls.
If you’ve been in a car accident, or hurt yourself roughhousing with the kids or gardening in the backyard, kinesio tape may help you protect the injured area while your body heals.
