Kinesiology Tape

Kinesiology tape or KT tape as it is commonly known, is made up of thin, stretchable cotton material. It comes with an acrylic adhesive and adhere to the skin. KT tape is used in case of musculoskeletal or sports injuries including those resulting in inflammation. It sits like the human skin on the body and is almost as stretchable and thick as the human skin. Kinesio tape does not bind, constrict or restrict natural movement. Kinesiology tape is mostly used by athletes to prevent injury or return to the sport faster. It also enhances sports performance by assuring low risk of overuse injuries. KT tape is very effective on its own and it can also be used with other treatments to obtain faster results. It can be worn for several days all the time while providing therapeutic benefits all this while. It is low in cost but produces great results. There are no side effects of using kinesio tape. It is easy to apply by yourself.

Some of the benefits of KT tape includes:

  • Pain relief: KT tape is capable of providing pain relief from both acute and chronic pain. It does not contain any topical medications. Kinesio tape just lightly lifts the skin that reduces pressure immediately on the pain receptors just beneath the skin. It is also beneficial for hot injuries where the pain is unbearable.
  • Swelling and Inflammation relief: Kinesiology tape reduces pressure on the lymphatic drainage system which helps in keeping the fluid moving without any blockage. It is helpful not only in case of sports injuries but also in post-surgical recovery and lymphedema.
  • Reduction in Bruises and Contusions: KT tape releases the blood accumulated below the skin due to bruising. When KT tape is applied in the bruise in a fan pattern the bruising dissipates as a result of the lifting mechanism.
  • Reduced Muscle Spasms and Cramping: KT tape enhances circulation resulting in enhanced delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to the tired and aching muscles thereby reducing cramps and spasms.
