The benefits of taping

You have probably seen it: the guy or the girl playing volleyball or running outdoors with colorful strips across shoulders, knee cups, or backs. That is kinesiology therapeutic tape. It is applied strategically to the body to provide numerous benefits.

How does it work?

The tape helps with sports-related injuries, supports weak zones, enhances performance, re-educates muscles, and even manages scars. It is made with stretchy material: usually a blend of nylon and cotton. The tape pulls on the skin, creating a microscopic space between your skin and the tissues below. It helps improve blood and lymphatic flow; once blood flow is restored, oxygen and nutrients are better able to reach damaged tissues. Kinesiology tape is usually water-resistant and strong enough to stay on for several days.

What are the benefits of the tape?

Pain relief

KT tape can reduce pain. As it lifts the skin, the tape helps decrease pressure on pain receptors. What is more, it also helps block pain signals going to the brain.

Improved support

Taping enables weak muscles to function efficiently. It also provides additional support to aching joints, tendons, and ligaments without restricting the range of motion.

Reduced inflammation

The tape helps encourage the circulation of oxygenated blood and lymphatic fluids, decreasing inflammation. Reduced inflammation means reduced pain and speedy recovery.

Improved athletic performance

Taping supports unstable joints and weak muscles, which enhances performance. It is especially valuable during sports competitions.

Accelerated recovery

The k-tape enables the body’s healing mechanisms to help you recover faster. You can apply it over the bruised area or overused muscles.

There are many more benefits of using k-tape. That is why it is super popular today. If you have ever wanted to try the tape, it is the right time! The tape has no side effects, and you can apply it by yourself.
