If you are an avid sports fan of any time you have more than likely seen some sort of taping on athletes. This is called kinesio taping method. This is becoming bigger in most athletes from professional to amateur.

What is kinesio tape method? This was first developed by Japanese doctor Kenzo Kase in 1979. Kase was a chiropractor who invented the tape to aid in therapy between patient visits. Kinesio tape is made of 100% elastic fibers in a wave like pattern that stretches in a longitudinal plane. This tape can be used for a wide range of ailments from chronic pain to menstral cramps.

Kinesio tape can be a huge asset to the amateur athlete. This is especially helpful for an upcoming event. In case of sudden injury kinesio tape can be applied during an event or workout to prevent further damage. This is like a band aid until you can make a visit to the doctor. There are different tension strengths to the kinesio tape to help support tendons and ligaments in the affected area.

As an athlete, keeping your body healthy and taken care of by a chiropractor, massage therapist, or physical therapist is essential for performance. Visit a professional with continued education on kinesio taping method by an approved CKTI. Your body with thank you!
