Those bright coloured tapes you saw our athletes wearing to support their muscle were probably Kinesio tape. But it isn’t anything new, it was invented by a Japanese chiropractor Dr Kenzo Kase in the 1970s.
It comes in bright blue, pink, beige and black and you don’t have to be an athlete to use it. Injuries sustained by repetitive strains respond very well to Kinesio tape. It is also used to help aid healing in scar tissue and to reduce bruising and improve lymphatic drainage.
Please call us to enquire about a consultation just for Kinesio tape. See ‘conditions‘ for image of a shoulder taped up suitable for a sporting injury or just to improve poor posture.
