Kinesio Taping
If you watched any of the Beijing Olympics, you might have noticed athletes with that funny looking tape on their shoulders, elbows, and knees. So what was that you ask? It is Kinesio Tape.

Kinesio Tape is a therapy that assists the natural healing process of the body by improving the function of muscles.
Reasons to use Kinesio Tape include:
– Gaining normal muscle function
– Reducing pain
– Correcting abnormal joint alignment
– Improving communication of the brain and muscle
– Improving lymphatic and blood flow

Kinesio Tape supports joints and assists muscles, while simultaneously allowing full active movement of the joint. It is employed across all ages and diagnoses including, but not limited to, dysfunction related to poor postural alignment, sports injuries, scar estrictions, and swelling due to injury or disease.

Using Kinesio tape will enable one to continue activity while an injury heals, whether chronic or acute.
