Kinesio tape is a therapeutic taping method used by physical therapists to address a variety of orthopedic issues that patients may be experiencing. It is appropriate for any stage of healing, whether it is in the early acute phase of injury, or into a later chronic phase of impairment.
Kinesio Tape can be used to treat patients with muscle imbalances, postural issues, ligament, tendon, and joint injuries, scarring, and pathological movement issues.
Benefits of this taping method include the ability for a joint to move through its normal range of motion, unlike that of more rigid athletic taping, the 3-5 day wearing time, and the continued therapeutic benefit outside of the treatment room.
