Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping offers a useful therapeutic tool for physiotherapists and masseurs, in case the balance of client’s properly functioning muscles, joints or ligaments is disturbed.

A large amount of movement disorders is directly linked with poor movement patterns, resulting in painful and sometimes unbearable state of a body.

These disorders are caused by the contraction of the space between the skin and muscle (e.g. inflammation) due to the lack of lymphatic drainage, when a lymphatic system is disturbed and thereby affects pain receptors. The lymph can drain into the lymphatic system by suitable applications of kinesiotaping. Consequently, the pain is going to be significantly suppressed and dampened.

One of the advantages of kinesiotaping is the therapist's possibility to significantly support his client in his further treatment after leaving the office by significantly streamlining of the process of healing and regeneration throughout wearing K-Tape, without affecting the mobility of the treated segment.
