Kinesio Taping for Pain Relief
You may have seen athletes in the Olympics or similar sports wearing colorful tape on their bodies, this is known as Kinesio tape and they are wearing it for good reason. Kinesio taping works in several ways to relief muscle and joint pain, support ligaments, increase range of motion, improve blood circulation and oxygen flow to the muscles. Below are some of the main functions that taping preforms:
Proper taping of the muscles improves the efficiency of the muscle contractions while reducing muscle pain and fatigue.
Increased Blood Flow
Muscle taping improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation within muscle fibers and ligaments. This increase in blood flow also promotes healing in the muscles by allowing them to receive rich nutrients.
Increase Range of Motion
Kensio taping also works to realign improper movement patters and adjust muscular misalignment from tight muscles. This reduces joint dysfunctions.
