Kinesio Taping

Kinesio Tape is a physiotherapy tool used by many athletes to recover from injury and optimize performance. Kinesio Taping works by gently lifting the top layer of your skin, reducing pressure on injured tissues, and improving circulation to the injured area. Wearing Kinesio Tape will reduce your pain, restore your range of motion, and promote effective body function. At Tacoma Chiropractic Center, we have been sharing the benefits of Kinesio Taping with our patients for many years.

What is Kinesio Tape?

Kinesio tape is made from cotton and acrylic material. If you are keen enough, you might have seen a lot of players with colorful bandages or strips on their legs or arms. These are strips of Kinesio Tape, and they do not limit movement. Wearing Kinesio Tape allows players to continue competing despite minor injuries. It also reduces the wearer’s chances of sustaining an injury.

How Does it Work?

Kinesio Tape moves and stretches like human skin, promoting ease of movement. When placed on the skin, the tape lifts the skin creating tiny air spaces between the bandage and your skin, promoting circulation. At Tacoma Chiropractic Center, we show you how to apply a Kinesio Tape and what you should and should not do while wearing it.

Benefits of Kinesio Taping

Following are some of the most notable benefits of wearing Kinesio Tape.

Reduced Inflammation

When the tape is first applied to the body, it raises the skin. This improves circulation to the injured area, naturally reducing inflammation and pain. The tape has been shown to improve blood circulation not only in the affected skin but through the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes are responsible for the swelling of injured areas; the improvement of blood flow reduces the chances of having swollen body parts.

Offers Support

Some areas in the human body are weaker than others and, in turn, need more support. Kinesiotaping offers that necessary support. All you have to do is carefully attach the tape to the affected area of your body. The tape does not hinder your movement compared to other bandages.

Restructures Muscles

Injury can cause muscles to atrophy and operate less efficiently. The support from Kinesio Tape allows your body to gradually restore its function.
