Kinesio Taping is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It can also be used to help alleviate pain and to promote lymphatic drainage, which can help with bruising and swelling. Taping of this nature differs from regular athletic taping because it does not inhibit normal range of motion, which allows for proper biomechanics and promotes healing in a rehabilitative fashion. For this reason, it can also be used to enhance performance in individuals, especially athletes.
