KINESIO TAPING® — A New Modality for Pain

Kinesio tape is a latex-free, cotton tape that alleviates pain and promotes lymphatic drainage by structurally lifting the skin. Kinesio tape works on injuries and afflictions of the joints and muscles.

Kinesio Tape Works By:

  • Decreasing Pain
  • Improving Range of Motion
  • Improving Circulation
  • Supporting Muscle
  • Creating Space
  • Decreasing Pressure

The taped area forms convolutions in the skin, increasing the space under the skin where the lymph ducts are. As a result, pressure and irritation are taken off the neural/sensory receptors. Then, slowly, the lymphatic system is unloaded and opened, allowing it to drain more freely. Over a bruise, Kinesio Tex Tape demonstrates the ability to increase the circulation and facilitate lymphatic flow. These results are seen within 24 hours of application.
