Product Overview

Kinesio Kinesiology Tape

Kinesio Tape - Kinesio Tex Tape


Kinesio Tape is a super thin athletic tape, about the same thickness and the elasticity of skin and muscles. Kinesio Tape is made of a porous cotton fabric with a medical grade acrylic adhesive that allows the skin under the tape to breathe and be cleaned while showering.

Kinesio Tape uses a special method of adhesive application combined with the porous nature of the fabric works 'with' your body. The Kinesio taping method provides a full range of motion, support, and stability, without adversely affecting the natural range of motion. Kinesio tape is designed for a 30-40% longitudinal only stretch and when applied, it lifts the skin and provides support for surrounding soft tissue.


This Kinesio Tape is LATEX FREE and NON-MEDICATED.


Kinesio Tex Tape was designed to be worn for 3 to 4 days without irritation; and an hour after application it will withstand athletic activity and showering without coming off. The water resistant type of taping Kinesio offers is necessary for the taping of hands and feet. Proper application does not require multiple layers; due to location of muscles, an application may cross over another application.



What Does Kinesio Taping Do?

Kinesio Tape gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without reducing circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and Pain Management.


It is a taping technique based on the body's own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name "Kinesio". Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.

Consequently, so much attention was given to the importance of muscle function that the idea of treating the muscles in order to activate the body's own healing process came about. Using an elastic tape, it was discovered that muscles and other tissues could be helped by outside assistance. Employment of Kinesio Taping creates a totally new approach to treating nerves, muscles, and organs. The first application of Kinesio Taping was for a patient with articular disorders.

For the first 10 years, orthopedists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and other medical practitioners were the main users of Kinesio Taping. Soon thereafter, Kinesio Taping was used by the Japanese Olympic volleyball players and word quickly spread to other athletes. Today, Kinesio Taping is accepted by medical practitioners and athletes in Japan, United States, Europe, South America and other Asian countries.

How is Kinesio Tex Tape Used?

The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over: muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused and tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. It is non-restrictive type of taping which allows for full range of motion.

In contrast, traditional sports taping is wrapped around a joint strictly for stability and support during a sporting event obstructing the flow of bodily fluids... an UNDESIRABLE side-effect.

Kinesio Tape is used for anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between. Examples include: muscular facilitation or inhibition in pediatric patients, carpal tunnel syndrome, lower back strain/pain (subluxations, herniated disc), knee conditions, shoulder conditions, hamstring, groin injury, rotator cuff injury, whiplash, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, patella tracking, pre- and post-surgical edema, ankle sprains, athletic preventative injury method, and as a support method.

I had some knee surgery last year, and after surgery I was going to physical therapy . We had trouble with some inflammation in the knee and some pain so my therapist put some of this tape on. Not paying attention to what she was doing, I went on my way and noticed that my knee didn't feel as sore and it wasn't as inflamed. Wow! I continue to use this on my other knee when it acts up and it really helps.

Answer:
first you will want to shave or wax etc. any hair that may be in this area. apply to clean dry skin without lotion, sweat etc. i would apply by cutting a strip rounded at the ends with zero pressure at the very ends and paper off tension in the center. apply in the direction of origin to insertion to facilitate this muscle set so apply as high on the upper inner leg or hip as feels practical avoiding sticking the tape to the more delicate sensitive skin in this area and apply just peeling it off the paper without adding or only adding very slight tension (the tape is already on a slight stretch apply with this light tension over the muscle that is hurting. allow the last inch or inch and a half to rest off the paper and shrink to zero stretch before sticking the tails.if you are a large individual or the groin pain covers a larger area repeat with an additional line of tape avoiding overlapping as much as possible. (it simply doesn't stick to itself well) If you find that pulling the skin of your leg in one direction or an other while moving the leg reduces any of the pain, then make a small y shaped strip by splitting one strip of tape lengthwise halfway up the middle...have the y tails grabbing the area that is needing some alignment coaching always with zero tension on the very ends to prevent peeling...use a little more tension on the y portion and paper off tension on the base of the y and again put zero tension on the last little bit of the base of the y. then rub the tape down well and dont shower or swim or do heavy physical activity for 30 minutes until the adhesive sets into your skin. then you should apply heat then cold then heat then cold to the pained area to flush the tissues

Answer:
I'm sorry to hear of your arm swelling. You may want to consider a compression garment however for lymphatic swelling cut 2 strips just short of the length of the upper arm and cut all the way up the tape in small strips except for the last inch so it looks a little like an octopus.stick the first tape end with no tension near the inside of the arm by the armpit. take the paper off carefully so it wont all stick to itself and apply with no tension in a meandering fashion toward your swelling site. make the second piece the same way and apply to the triceps area near the armpit and also apply in an undulating pattern towared the area of swelling. the color is based on cronic injury and acute injury... use pink for older injuries and blue for fresh injuries just like we use cold and or heat. The tape is exactly the same except for the dye used to color the tape. though i find when using the beigh people address me as injured and when i use the colored people address me as sporty

Answer:
touch travels faster the pain so if something is sitting on the skin giving the skin signals when the joints move,etc. the signal on the skin travels faster then then pain signal to the brain and blocks some of the pain perception. and when it reduces the inflammation, then it also decreases pain by decreasing the signal on the pressure sensitives nerve receptors. i hope that answered your question.

Answer:
This is exactly what I use Kinesio tape for. I can play golf several days in a row if I use the tape. If I don't my shoulder is too sore after the first day. As far as recovery is concerned, I doubt the tape will cause even a slight rotator cuff tear to heal, however if your shoulder is merely strained, the tape should prevent reinjury.

Answer:
Kinesio tape will work to relieve swelling and pain in the carpal tunnel if applied correctly. it should not be used as a long term stand alone therapy, it is meant to be used during rehabilitation. the correct taping is not something you can do by yourself it would take a third hand to apply the tape tension correctly. go to kinesio tape assoc. website to find a therapist near you that can show you the proper applicaton, and address the underlying issues of work site ergonomics, and posture that can help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
