Kinesio tape is an elastic, non-medicinal material that stretches to stabilize a muscle or joint without restricting movement. Regular wraps or braces can be restrictive, while kinesio tape is not. Kinesio tape is designed to mimic the skin and move freely, but not be restrictive in providing adequate support.
Kinesio taping decreases pain, corrects abnormal movements in muscles and joints, and increases vascular and lymphatic flow. Kinesio tape’s ability to form to the skin has shown it to be effective in helping overcome instabilities in the body.
