Kinesiology Taping

What is Kinesiology taping?

Kinesiology taping, or K-Taping is a rehabilitative tape. It is used for symptom relief but also tissue support when returning to activity of any level. Dr Kase initially developed and introduced k-taping in Japan. British physiotherapists first used k-taping in the 2000 Sidney Olympics. It is now becoming common practice in sport due to its huge exposure by athletes wearing it. You will see it used in many different sporting environments from football to athletics.

Kinesiology Taping

The benefit of K-Taping is that it does not limit joint function like many other tapes. It has a huge input into the body’s sensory system to help accelerate the normal healing processes.

It is applied in many ways and worn for up to 3 days. K-taping acts as a prolonged treatment from therapy sessions. Other benefits include:

  • Accelerates swelling removal
  • Reduces pain
  • It can help activate weak or inhibited muscles
  • Lengthens tight tissue

Kinesiology taping is included, where appropriate, in any physiotherapy treatment
