The Kinesio Taping® technique and Kinesio Tex tape was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in Japan over 25 yrs ago. Dr. Kase had been searching for a taping method to assist in the healing of traumatised tissue. Dr Kase found that standard taping techniques, provided muscle and joint support but reduced range of motion, did not support the fascia and, sometimes, inhibited the actual healing process of traumatised tissue.
Kinesio Taping’s key differentiator is its ability to aid the lymphatic and muscle systems, while supporting joints and muscles. Kinesio Taping® applications are a major breakthrough and can reduce recovery times. Kinesio® has become one of the fastest growing sport treatment modalities in the world.
Kinesio taping can help many conditions below are a few examples:
- Tennis/Golfers elbow
- Back/neck pain
- Shin splints
- Osteoarthritis knee
- Patella tracking problems
- Shoulder problems and injuries
