Kinesiology Tape - Sports Performance Enhancement

Update:2023-04-07 14:13
Kinesiology Tape (KT) – Sports Performance Enhancement.KT tape is a unique, elastic sports tape designed to relieve pain and support muscles, tendons, and ligaments for optimal athletic performance. It is light, flexible, and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
The tape is applied to the skin by a physical therapist or physician. Typically, the tape is cut to a 1-2 inch (2.5-5 cm) strip and placed onto the area being treated.
Kinesiology tape is an elastic, supportive tape that can be used to improve movement, reduce pain, and help re-educate your neuromuscular system. The tape's shape, direction, and amount of stretch - along with the duration of time it is applied - combine to achieve its intended goal.
Tape is also thought to increase the space between your skin and underlying tissues, creating a micro-space that helps reduce joint irritation. Several studies have shown that the increased space created by kinesiology tape can relieve joint pain and stiffness in areas like the knee and shoulder.
It may also improve circulation and help with lymphatic flow, reducing swelling from injury or a buildup of fluids. This is especially helpful for people with conditions like lymphedema, a condition in which fluid builds up and causes pain or discomfort.
The elasticity of kinesiology tape allows it to recoil slightly, lifting the skin and helping create a microscopic space between your skin and the underlying structures, according to some physical therapists. This change in input to your brain is thought to normalize muscle tone and decrease pain and muscular spasm.
