Kinesio-Taping is a holistic and drug-free treatment method with a wide range of applications. It is a supportive component of modern physical therapy concepts and was first used in competitive sports. Meanwhile, Kinesio-Taping has found its place in prevention, pain management and rehabilitation.
The tape is a highly elastic special plaster that is applied to injured and aching body parts. Due to its high elasticity the tape expands and contracts to enable all movements.
The Kinesio-Tape treatment uses the body's own healing process by effecting the neurological and circulatory system. Due to the specific type of taping a stimulating effect on muscles, joints and lymphatic and nervous system is achieved. Therefore, it is an additional application for almost all diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Patients with chronic pain, for example, patients with chronic joint or back pain may benefit from this therapeutic approach.
