Give yourself safety in motion and eliminate pain with the help of kinesiological tapes!
What is taping?
Taping is a therapeutic technique that involves the application of kinesiological tapes on the skin (kinesio tape), with the mission of supporting muscles and joints and eliminating pain, but without reducing freedom of movement.
This method appeared in Japan in the 1970s, being introduced by Dr. Kenzo Kase. Although initially intended for performance athletes, it has since been widely used by physiotherapists and other practitioners to treat a wide range of orthopedic, neuromuscular, postoperative, neurological or post-traumatic conditions (contractures, stretches, muscle tears, arthritis, osteoarthritis, bursitis, scoliosis, kyphosis, lumbosciatica, spondylosis, herniated disc, etc.).
The kinesiological tapes used in taping have the shape of colored cotton ribbons and are elastic, which adhere very well to the skin. In their application, muscle
fibers, joints, blood and lymph vessels are taken into account, and to be effective it is essential to be glued correctly, preferably by a specialist, after a thorough physical evaluation.
What are the advantages of kinesio bands?
- Reduces pain;

- It does not limit flexibility or ability to move;
- They can be worn for several days in a row;
- They can be used complementary to other physical therapies, amplifying their effects;
- Prevents injuries to athletes;
- Rebalances posture in conditions such as scoliosis or kyphosis;
- Due to the vacuum effect given by the passive lifting of the skin, they allow the drainage of the lymphatic system and the venous system, speeding up the healing of edema.
