What does Kinesio taping do?

Kinesio taping works by doing a few important things for your body. First, it helps reset the circuitry in the affected part of your body by correcting any faulty interactions between the skin and the muscles, joints, and tendons underneath. This results in improved muscle strength and activity.
Kinesio taping also works by blocking any pain receptors being sent to your brain. If those painful messages aren’t being received, the muscles in the affected area will loosen up and the likelihood for spasms will significantly decrease.

How will I benefit from Kinesio taping?

There are many reasons why Kinesio taping may be used, but it is successful in providing some of the same results across the board. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Managing scar tissue.
