Kinesiotape is a special elastic sports and fitness tape designed for muscle, liagment and tendon pain relief and support.
Kinesiotape is applied along muscles, ligaments, and tendons (soft tissue) to provide a lightweight, external support that helps you remain active while recovering from ininjuries. Kinesiotape creates neuromuscular feedback, called proprioception, that inhibits (relaxes) or faciltitates stronger firing of muscles and tendons. This feedback creates support elements without the bulk and restriction commonly associated with wraps and heavy bracing. It can also help the body to reduce areas of swelling and bruising that follow an injury. Kinesiotape gives you confidence to perform your best!
Who is it for? ANYONE!
Whether you are training for your first marathon, getting ready for your next game, reaching a personal fitness goal, or just trying to get through the day, you already know that nothing slows you down faster than PAIN and INJURY. Kinesiotape is lightweight, comfortable to wear, and can be used for hundreds of common injuries such as lower back pain, knee pain, shin splints, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis/golfers elbow, just to name a few. It can even be applied to improve posture!
It not only looks cool, like the Olympians who sport it, but it also provides 24 hour support for days at a time--through sweat, humidity and can even be worn in water due to the specially designed adhesive. It is applied in minutes and lasts for days! Patients can find this product in the marketplace, however, without proper application, especially in hard to reach areas, it could be found ineffective. To get the best results, have Dr. Laura apply it for you, so you can feel better without the hassle!
