Kinesiotaping


Kinesiotaping is mainly used for pain management but also to support ligaments and muscles to normalize the movement pattern. Some athletes use taping to increase their performance and to help sport injuries to heal faster.

Tape has a similar thickness and elasticity as our skin, which means it does not reduce or limit movements.

The principle of taping is simple: The tape lifts the skin wavy of the fascia and takes the pressure from those structures. It improves blood and lymph circulation.

It is also supposed to stimulate proprioception, improve the muscle tone and stabilize the ligaments passive.

Tapes should be applied only by qualified personal (like a physical therapist).

Note: Even it the tape is hypoallergenic there is always a possibility of an allergic reaction. (EDS patients with mast cell activation more likely).
