What is Kinesio Taping?
Kinesio Taping is a therapeutic taping technique which is prominently used in sport and physical therapy. Kinesiology is a part of medicine that not only attributes movement to muscles, but also control of circulation of lymph and blood, body temperatures etc. It attempts to treat muscles in such a way as to activate the body’s own natural healing process.
The Kinesio Taping method gives support and stability to the joints and muscles while allowing free movement and circulation. It is used to prevent injuries during strenuous activities, support muscles, relax overused muscles, treat pain, inflammation and edema.
Shoulder instabilities can develop after acute dislocation or long term overuse activities that stretch the shoulder capsule. While most instabilities result in an injury in the anterior and adjoining regions, the joint and its movement might be affected. This might cause the area to become inflamed. The muscles may be compressed against the shoulder blade or arch leading to a development of edema, and over time, partial or full thickness injury.
How does Kinesio Taping help?
Kinesio Taping helps to stabilize the joint and supports the shoulder muscles to move freely, thus reducing edema and pain. It improves shoulder security, power and stability in conditions of shoulder fracture, frozen shoulder, muscle pains or strains, pinched nerves, overuse injuries, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder arthritis, shoulder dislocation and other injuries by Read more
