The Kinesio Taping® Method is a therapeutic taping technique that alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin increasing interstitial space and allowing for decreased inflammation in affected areas. Based upon research and years of clinical use, the Kinesio® Taping Method specifically applies a Kinesio tape, such as Rocktape, based on evaluation and assessment to dictate a specific application.
Kinesio® Tape applications can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to reduce pain and inflammation, promote post-surgical healing, optimize performance, prevent injury and promote good circulation, and can assist the body’s natural healing process.
