Kinesiology Taping (KT) is the latest form of taping and one that has attracted a lot of attention due to its often brightly coloured appearance.
At Jon W Sports Injury, we are firm believers in the use of KT. While we strongly believe that no athlete should become reliant on taping or supports we also find that KT has a very effective place in rehabilitation and a return to sport.
The improvements of kinesiology tape are multiple and the tape can often last several days providing benefit throughout the day.
The KT will assist with the body’s natural healing process by lifting the skin. This allows the drainage of inflammation to occur at an increased rate.
The KT will also provide increased elasticity to muscles that may be tight due to injury. These will allow the joint to work with full range of motion while placing less stress on the injured tissue.
KT can be applied to all parts of the body to provide benefit.
