Alleviate Pain, Enhance Performance and Facilitate Rehabilitation
When an athlete suffers an injury, the outcome and implications are often more severe than for a normal person. Kinesio Taping is a new and effective treatment for muscle/joint dysfunction. This taping method is fundamentally different to other athletic taping techniques. Using a highly elastic and unique adhesive tape called Kinesio Tex, alongside specialist Kinesio Taping applications, the method gives muscles support, even during intense activity, without affecting circulation or range of motion.
Kinesio tape can be used to treat a virtually limitless number of injuries. It can be used to reduce swelling in a new injury or alleviate chronic pain in older injuries. It mimics the qualities of human skin and enhances muscular, joint and circulatory function. Kinesio tape is approved for any stage of injury and can also be valuable in injury prevention. By using Kinesio tape, athletes can continue their training and sporting activities despite injury.
Book in for an appointment if you feel Kinesio taping could help you.
Kinesio Tape and other products to help with sports injuries are available to buy at PhysioWorksNI.
