Kinesiotaping – A simple but effective working principle
In kinesio taping, highly elastic, breathable plasters are glued to the skin. These tapes stretch like a second skin and contract again. With every movement the skin is gently lifted and receives a small massage. This treatment stimulates the lymph and blood flow, regulates muscle tone and is also suitable for supporting the joints. Kinesio-Taping can be used both as an adjunct to therapy and as a preventive measure to maintain health, for example in sports.
Kinesiotaping can be used in many ways
Kinesio Taping was developed over 30 years ago by the Japanese chiropractor Kenzo Kase. Today, his tape method is used in numerous treatments for muscle, tendon and skeletal pain. The Kinesio-Tape can be used in a wide variety of applications, e. g. for the treatment of pain and discomfort in the knee, ankle or shoulder joint, sports injuries, back and neck muscle tensions and tendinitis as well as tennis or golf arms.
