Kinesiology tape is one of the best new adjunct therapies. The tape has been around for decades and came into popular demand after the 2008 Olympics. It is a continuous type of therapy that can help reduce pain, help speed up tissue healing, help fluid movement and help muscle activation during therapeutic exercise. It can also be used to enhance performance.
It is important that the tape stay on for up to 5 days. Therefore, it is important to use a high quality tape that is not irritating and does not have early peel off. Clinical application skills are crucial as well. If the proper skin preparation is not performed, you can have both increased irritation as well as early peel off. SpiderTech offers kinesiology tape from the original Japanese manufacturer.
