Kinesiology tape alleviates discomfort and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting effect forms convolutions in the skin, thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation. This reduces pressure while enabling a more effective flow of blood and lymphatic fluid in and out of the target area.
Kinesiology tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce inflammation, prevent injury and promote good circulation and healing, and assist in returning the body to homeostasis.
Dynamic Tape acts mechanically like a spring to strongly decelerate or assist motion to improve movement patterns.
Dynamic Tape can help protect and reduce load on injured or overworked structures like a muscle strain, ankle sprain, tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis and can assist where weakness is present e.g. after ACL repair to address risk factors associated with pain or re-injury.
Quality of life is determined by our ability to perform our normal daily activities. For someone recovering from a stroke, that might be to grasp a cup. For others, it might be to run a marathon. Dynamic Tapes effect can be immediate, observable and measurable.
Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping (SPRT), developed by Dr Tim Brown, helps determin the direction necessary for proper approximation and compression of injured tissues. SPRT gives greater relief from the injury in movement patterns. Due to the types of tapes used, SPRT is very supportive of injured or torn tissues while still allowing for proper range of motion with activity. Can help with inuries such as, Ankle and Knee strains and sprains, Golfer's or Tennis Elbow, Shoulder injuries, Postural Disorders, Neck or Low back issues.
