Kineseology tape can benefit a wide variety of musculoskeletal and sports injuries plus inflammatory conditions and can assist in the healing of traumatised tissue and muscle.
Rather than being wrapped around an injured joint or muscle group, kinesiology tape is applied directly over and/or around the periphery of these areas. The tape is non-restrictive and can be worn for 3-5 days allowing the therapeutic benefits to accumulate for the entire time it is worn.
An increasing number of athletes (both professional and non-professional) are now using kineseology tape to improve their sporting performance, prevent injury and allow them to return to sport quicker.
We can also provide more traditional athletic taping, the primary function of which is to provide added support to joints, muscles and ligaments by reducing movement.
