Kinesio TapingWhat 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 Instability
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

Shoulder BursitisWhat is Bursitis of Shoulder?

A bursa is a small fluid filled sac that helps to reduce friction between tissues of the body as they glide over each other. One of the major bursae is located at the shoulders adjacent to the tendons. Bursitis is the inflammation of this sac around the shoulder joint due to injury, chronic overuse or other causes. The inflamed bursa will also compress the neighbouring soft tissue resulting in pain and edema.

Signs and Symptoms

Bursitis is typically identified by the localization of pain or swelling and tenderness near the shoulder. Movement of arms or shoulder may also be affected. Shoulder bursitis may often be accompanied by tendinitis of tendons adjacent to the affected bursa. It can also cause a pinching or shooting pain when moving the elbow away from the body, also referred to as a sign of impingement.
