Kinesio® Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways by modifying the shape, direction and amount of stretch to:

  • Normalise muscle function
  • Improve lymphatic flow and circulation
  • Promote healing
  • Reduce pain and inflammation
  • Correct misalignment of joints and connective tissues
  • Prevent injury
  • Enhance performance
Kinesio® Tape is made of high 100% high grade cotton so is comfortable and breathable. The 140% elasticity mimics the flexibility of skin and muscle. The adhesive is heat activated, light, mild and hypo-allergenic, causing less skin sensitivity than other tapes. Kinesio Tape® is completely latex free and the unique design keeps it air permeable as it microscopically lifts skin and channels away moisture. Kinesio® Tape can be worn 24 hours a day for 3-5 continuous days due to its unique physical properties. It can be applied during any phase of injury as it can be clinically utilized to initially reduce inflammation and progress through all the phases of rehabilitation.

Kinesio tape is being extensively used by elite athletes and professional sports teams overseas, and is increasingly being recognised for its value in Australia.  Ask your physio during your consultation if you would like to know more, and whether it would assist your recovery, improve posture or enhance sporting performance.
