Professional basketball players, football players, Olympians, and even weekend warriors have been frequent users of this popular pain reliever called Kinesiotaping. It is great to use for aches and pains of the muscles and joints in the body.
Kinesiotaping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. This type of taping is applied to reduce pain and inflammation to overused muscles. Kinesiotaping was developed back in the 1970s but it has been breaking ground in the last few years in sports performance and pain management.
Kinesiotaping works a couple of different ways, but unlike regular athletic tape this type of tape does not restrict motion. The elastic tape lifts the skin “increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas”. This allows for the inflamed tissue to heal and restore normal function to the muscle and joints of the body.
