Kinesiology Taping At Emerald

Kinesiology taping may be used to help reduce swelling, provide support and reduce pain. 
It can be used to assist in treating injuries and improve performance. 

Kinesio Tape was first developed in the 1970s by Dr. Kenzo Kase, a Japanese chiropractor who wanted a tape that provided support but didn’t limit movement the way traditional athletic tapes do.

Kinesio tape is a blend of nylon and cotton which is designed to mimic the skins elasticity so you can use you full range of motion. When the tape is applied it recoils slightly which gently lifts the skin. it is believe this creates a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath.
