Kinesio Taping is an effective taping/bandaging technique which speeds up body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles, without restricting the joint’s full range of motion. This stretchable cotton tape when applied with right technique, correctly on the affected muscles or joints creates pull, increasing blood circulation and reduces swelling fast.  The tape allows evaporation and quick drying hence it can be left of the affected parts for longer periods of time than ordinary bandages.

Kinesio tape is used for treatment of variety of orthopedic, musculoskeletal, neurological medical conditions in the elderly as well as the young.  Quick sports injury treatment and prevention is also one of its benefits. Used for chronic pain treatment, athletic injuries and muscle support the tape can be applied on any part of the human body and used for:
