kinesiology-tapingKinesiology Taping Supplies have been gaining popularity through the years as this type of therapy is now well known by more and more people around the world. Kinesio tape is made of an elastic cotton fabric with an acrylic adhesive. It is used for treating injuries of athletic injuries and some other physical disorders. 

There are many benefits when using kinesiology taping supplies. The first and most important one is that it gives supports to the muscles. When used properly, taping will assist the muscle in its contraction even if it is weak.  This will reduce the feeling of pain and muscle fatigue and at the same time prevent the muscle cramps. It also helps in controlling movement and contraction of the muscle to control and prevent over-extension and over-contraction. 

Kinesio tape also helps remove the congestion to the flow of body fluids by improving the blood and lymphatic circulation. It reduces swelling plus the chemical buildup adhered to the muscle tissue.


Another benefit provided by kinesiology taping supplies is that they help activate the body’s endogenous analgesic system. This tape facilitates the body’s own mechanism to heal from an injury. Activating this system has taken a peak as it is now a central focus in chiropractic medicine. 

Kinesio tape will also correct joint problems. It is set to improve the range of motion and it adjusts misalignments that come as a result of tighten muscles. 

Kinesio tape is not an ordinary athletic tape. Back in the days these injuries would be taped to prevent muscle and joint movement. The complete taping of the injury would restrict the movement however it would have a direct negative impact on the blood circulation around the affected area not allowing the body to trigger its own healing process.  Kinesiology taping supplies do the complete opposite. By applying the tape correctly you open up the muscle and give it full movement. The tape will stabilize the injured or strained area without the muscle or tendon being encircled by a ring of tape. Upon body movements the tape, skin and fascia over the affected area also move. Together they pull away from the injury  and allow the flow of lymphatic fluid to cleanse the area.
