Kinesio Taping is a therapeutic taping technique that uses elastic tape to enhance the function of different physiologic tissues and systems. Kinesio Tape is a technique that can be combined with other therapies including acupuncture, Active Release, and electrical modalities. The tape can be worn for extended periods of time with continued therapeutic benefit between clinical visits.
Kinesio Taping can relax overused muscles or facilitate inhibited muscles in order to restore muscle balance or exert postural influence. It also provides proprioceptive correction by signalling to the brain, via skin receptors, information about normal tension on target tissues, and can offer dynamic stability to target tissues.
