We now offer Kinesio taping for our patients to increase the painless range of motion and muscular power. The method can be used to support the body’s own healing process e.g. through the circulation, lymphatic system and neurophysiology.
As for the joint mechanics, Kinesio Taping can be used to increase the joint’s range of motion, guide the joint to act functionally right and bring mechanical support to the joint by pulling the tape tight or applying more tape layers. Still, kinesio taping works primarily through the sensory system whereas the traditional sport tape has true mechanical effect too.
