Kinesio Taping

Users and Uses...

Since the introduction of the Kinesio Taping Method over 30 years ago, it has been widely accepted in the athletic and western medical communities and has been used by professional and elite tennis players, footballers, golfers, swimmers, baseball and Olympians to name but a few.

Conventional Athletic Tape is designed to restrict and support the movement of the injured body part to protect the area from further damage. In contrast, Kinesio Tex Gold tape, has been clinically shown to not only offers the support needed, but allows the patient complete range of motion during the rehabilitation process to facilitate the ultimate theraputic modality, exercise. Both elite and amateur athletes across the world have integrated the Kinesio Taping Method as a component of injury prevention and rehabilitation as well as performance.
