Made popular by David Beckham, Lance Armstrong and the Serena Williams the tape is now synonymous with elite athletes wanting to manage injuries whilst still competing.
Kinesio taping works by 4 main functions:
- PAIN- Reduces pain by taking pressure off pain receptors
- LYMPHATIC- Eliminates lymphatic fluid haematomas beneath the skin
- JOINT - Adjusts mis-alignment to ais fascia and muscle function
- MUSCLE- Reconditions abnormal tension and strengthens the muscle.
