Kinesiology tape is used to support and relieve pain in muscles, joints, and ligaments. It reduces swelling, increases mobility and enhances recovery. It can be used to prevent or treat many common muscles and joint related injuries including sprains, muscle strains, subluxations, and tendonitis. It also provides support and pain relief before, during or after activity without restricting the range of motion.
Kinesiology tape is also used to support injured muscles or joints without restricting the full range of motion in individuals with neurological disorders. It helps to aid in faster muscle recovery, prevents cramps or spasms, prevents over-stretching or over-contraction of muscles, and also enhances muscle tone and strength.
