Acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan first used kinesology tape.
Today it is used by a variety of practitioners throughout the world to help treat injuries and improve athletic performance.
While kinesiology tape is often associated with athletes, medical professionals have been using tape to heal a wide range of ailments, not just sports injuries.
Tape works by lifting the skin slightly away from the muscle and fascia underneath, which helps to decompress the injury. Tape can help treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, lower back issues, shin splits, pain associated with pregnancy, and more.
With the rising popularity of tape, there are many myths that surround the practice. Learn how to make tape work for you.
