What is Functional Muscle Taping?
Functional muscle taping is the application of a thin, stretchy therapeutic tape or rocktape that is used in a variety of methods.
The tape is placed on injured areas to ensure that the muscles and ligaments do not stretch beyond their natural capacity during activities. It’s one of the best ways to reduce inflammation, improve sports performance, and prevent joint injuries without affecting circulation or range of motion.
Pain Relief and Support
Whether you’re an athlete in training or just trying to get through the day, injuries can negatively impact your overall health and well-being.
Kinesiotaping is used to treat injuries and provide extra support to the muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It's lightweight, comfortable, and used for hundreds of common injuries.
Not only is it used to treat pain, but it can also prevent further injury, increase blood flow, and correct postural problems.
How Kinesiotaping is Applied
Kinesiotaping can be applied to multiple areas of the body, including legs, knees, ankles, feet, back, neck, shoulders, arms, and hands.
When applied correctly, the tape creates a space between the muscle and skin to take pressure off of the muscles. This allows space for blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and muscle movement.
