KINESIO TAPING NOW AVAILABLE
The Kinesio® Taping Method has taken the Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine world by storm. This amazing taping method was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase over 25 years ago in Japan. Dr Kenzo Kase says he came up with the design because he found standard taping techniques, like conventional strapping, too restrictive for his patients.
Although standard strapping provides muscle and joint support, it limits movement and, according to Dr Kase, gets in the way of the healing process by restricting the flow of inflammatory fluids below the skin. Kinesio® tape is different, he says, because it lifts the skin unloading the facial tissue to assist the lymphatic flow, which, in turn, reduces pain and swelling.
