Kinesiology tape – Normalise muscle tone
Kinesiology tape can be used on a wide range of common musculoskeletal and neural conditions due to the diversity of how it can be applied, some examples include; muscle strains, tendinopathies, joint sprains and muscle imbalances.
When someone is injured, fatigued, sick, or inflamed, the symphony of muscle action that normally takes place with great accuracy often falls out of tune. This can happen all over the body. For instance, research has shown that people who sprain their ankle tend to have altered activity of their hip muscle as a result. With Kinesiology Tape this helps bring dormant muscle back to life and help calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.
The tape is waterproof, breathable, hard-wearing and can be left on for up to 5 days so it has a long-lasting effect on the injury. Kinesiology tape is elastic and flexible so can be used over any part of the body without “rubbing” or “slipping”. Kinesio tape can be applied to any muscle group.
