General Aches/Pains/Injuries Introduction

You don't have to be a sportsman or athlete to benefit from the Kinesio taping method. Kinesio taping can help anyone of any age with any general ache, pain or injury by providing support to muscles, joints and soft tissue. Read on to see how Alleviation therapeutic taping can help.

Kinesio Taping Help

Whether someone has an injury, is suffering a long term pain or suffers with repetitive strain (overuse working pain) Alleviation therapeutic taping can help.

The Kinesio taping technique is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process whilst providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. Also providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.

By using Kinesio tape Alleviation therapeutic taping can reduce your pain by facilitating lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions (ripples) in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation, decrease in pain and promotes good circulation. This works not only for the parts of your body that are currently hurting, but also for the surrounding areas as they assist the muscles that are currently not working well.

As Kinesio is a non-restrictive taping it can be worn anytime of the day without interfering with normal daily work or activities. It is made from 100% Cotton, is 100% latex-free, water-resistant and hypoallergenic meaning that it a fantastic safe alternative and drug free therapy for any ache or pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

Kinesio Tape is designed to be worn for 3-5 days. An hour after application it will withstand athletic activity and showering without coming off. The water resistant type should be used for hands and feet and it is also useful for people who regularly take part in sporting activities.
There are no physical differences between the coloured tapes, Some professions use them as a form of colour therapy, however they all work in the same way.
Kinesio Tape is made from cotton with a hypoallergenic acrylic adhesive. It contains no latex or medications, decreasing the likelihood of skin irritation. Individuals with extremely sensitive skin, however, may still experience rash, itching or irritation. Remove immediately if any irritation is noted!
Remove tape in the direction of hair growth, which is usually away from the centre of the body on the trunk, and in a downward direction on the arms or legs. To minimize discomfort, press the skin at the end of the taped area while gently peeling tape back. Tape that is still strongly adhered to skin may be loosened by soaking with baby oil, vegetable oil for 5-10 minutes before removing.
Kinesio Tex Tape is made from a very thin, porous, 100% cotton fabric. It has a medical grade heat-activated adhesive. It is non-medicated and latex free - making it very skin friendly.
Without getting too technical, the tape is applied over the affected area with the muscles in a stretched position. Then the tape is applied from one end of the muscle to the other with very little to no stretch on the tape itself. The tape is applied from the ORIGIN to INSERTION of the muscle for SUPPORT and from INSERTION to ORIGIN for REHABILITATION.
Without a doubt, the technique is the most important aspect in achieving the greatest therapeutic results. But the full benefits of the Kinesio Taping Method were not possible until Kinesio Tex Tape was developed. The Kinesio Taping Method requires a tape that is patient and skin-friendly, possesses optimum elastic qualities, is the same thickness as the skin, and is durable enough to stay on for multiple days, even through sweating and showers.
• 100% High Grade Cotton – for comfort and air-permeability • 140% Elasticity – same flexibility as human skin and muscles • Heat Activated Adhesive – very light, mild, and hypo-allergenic • 100% Latex Free • Air permeable, microscopically lifts the skin, channels away moisture • Durable – average usage allows 3-5 days per application
Kinesio Taping can work well for children, even young children. However, it should only be applied under the guidance and advice of a trained practitioner and it is very important to be aware of fragile or sensitive skin. Take extra care when removing the tape and test on a small area before applying applications for longer periods of time.
Kinesio Taping for sports injury and physiotherapy should only be applied under the guidance/advice of a practitioner. Effective and successful results will only be obtained by applying the correct taping applications for a specific condition. We recommend that anyone interested in using the tape on there own to speak to a certified Kinesio taping practitioner.
