What is Kinesiology Taping?

If you have been in during a week day appointment, you may have noticed Christie wearing Kin Tape, and been asking what it is used for!

Kinesiology tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries, plus inflammatory conditions.  Kinesiology tape is similar to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows it to be worn without restriction of your movement. It may be used for injury rehabilitation, pain management, swelling and alignment.

There are many different brands available, and it may be used on a wide range of ailments. Check out this link for more detailed instructions on application. If you have any questions, ask us the next time you’re in the clinic and we’d love to help!
