If you watch sports like tennis or volleyball or swimming, you might be noticing that athletes are often showing off some colorful tape. Taping for athletic injuries is nothing new, but Kinesio Tape is something a little different.
This special elastic tape is not made to restrict motion of a joint or muscle, but to move with a muscle and assist joint movement by lifting fascia and massaging muscles. The tape is latex-free and waterproof, and can be worn for 3-5 days providing massage and subtle corrections between therapeutic treatments.
In my practice, Kinesio Tape is my go-to treatment for plantar fasciitis, SI joint pain, tendonitis, and even lymphatic drainage problems.
