Kinesio taping helps to normalise muscle function. It is used to help relax a muscle or to help a muscle turn on a little more. It is also possible to decrease bruising and swelling and help to soften hard painful varicose veins. Kinesio taping can also assist with lymphatic drainage following cancer treatment.
Different taping techniques can be used to protect an injured joint or body region whilst it is healing, but also to use as a protection for a recent or a previously injured joint during sport or work activity.
