Want to recover quickly from your last workout and get ready for another bout? Well, you need the Kinesiology Muscles Pain-Relief Tape. It’s elastic and made with cotton and medical glue. You apply it to your body to provide support, reduce muscle pain, reduce swelling and improve your performance. With this Tape, you can treat pain from athletic injuries and a variety of disorders.
This Tape has a long history. Dr Kenzo Kase developed the Kinesio Taping Method in the ’70s to make up for a shortfall in treatment options that were available around then. He needed an approach to facilitate the body’s natural recuperating process, and prolong the benefits of his treatment after his patients left his hospital. Through his education as a bone and joint specialist, his inborn ability to detect internal pain and disfunction through the skin, and his creative therapeutic mind, he was able to develop new strategies for treating his diagnosis. One of such strategy was the Kinesio Taping.
When your muscles are overstressed, due to exercises or illness, they get imbalanced and weak. The Kinesiology Muscles Pain-Relief Tape is a supportive material that aims to maintain balance in the muscles and connecting tissues.
How Does The Tape Work?
When injured, blood and other fluids develop to cause inflammation and swelling. In the event that there’s too much inflammation, the excess can’t be taken out by the lymphatic system. So the lymphatic vessels become compacted, which keeps oxygen and nutrients from being conveyed to healing tissues.
When you apply the Kinesiology Tape properly, the flexibility in the Tape delicately lifts the skin from the tissues beneath. This lifting of the skin makes a space to improve blood and lymphatic flow which ultimately assists with alleviating pressure and reducing swelling. When blood flow is reestablished, oxygen and nutrients are better ready to arrive at damaged tissues and help with healing.
Sport-related injuries like Achilles tendonitis, sprains, strains, shin splints, swelling, and instability can easily be relieved by wrapping the affected area with the Tape.
Physical therapists sometimes use this taping as an overall treatment for patients who have been injured. In fact, the American Physical Therapy Association reports that the Kinesiology Taping is most effective when used with other treatments like manual therapy. It’s waterproof and can last on the body for about 4 or 5 days. You can have your bath, swim, and do other activities with water without the Tape coming off.
The tape comes in a variety of colors and cameo patterns. Pick the color you’d like, and that match your clothes or shoes.
To apply, simply peel the Tape and place it over the affected area, that’s causing pain. Make sure your skin is clean and dry and free of lotions before applying. Do not apply on open wounds or on allergic skin.
