Kinesio taping is a therapeutic application of elastic, adhesive tapes on the skin surface to alleviate pain and facilitate lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. The tapes can be applied in various ways, depending on the intended effect. Kinesio taping is used to reduce pain and inflammation, promote post-surgical healing, optimize performance, prevent injury and stimulate good circulation, and can assist the body’s natural healing process. The tapes can also be used to support certain joints. More precisely, if applied in a specific manner, they can impact the muscle tone and thus help correct imbalances or asymmetries. Kinesio taping may be applied for both treatment and rehabilitation purposes, either as a standalone method or in combination with other therapeutic modalities.
