Kinesiotaping is a special type of muscle bandaging obtained by applying adhesive colored tape.

This “tape” was born in Japan almost 30 years ago from the idea of Dr. Kenzo Kase, who then continued his studies and implemented the instrument in the United States.

Kinesiotape is made of elastic, non-medicated, hypoallergenic, water-resistant cotton with weight and thickness comparable to skin.

How it works?

The main effect is to lift slightly the superficial part of the skin exploiting the elastic power of the material, which must be positioned with professionalism and precision, to obtain the desired effect. Depending on how much you “pull” the tape, the effect produced varies from a lymphatic draining effect to a stabilizing effect comparable to the white tape typical of ankle sprains.

What are the main effects?

Among the many beneficial effects we highlight the immediate reduction of the pain syndrome, the increase of the range of movement in joint diseases, the improvement of blood vascularization, the normalization of muscular tension, the removal of venous and lymphatic congestion, the correction of muscular alignment, the improvement of posture, the absorption of edemas.

But not only, it improves the athlete’s technical gesture during the competition, favors the post-race muscular recovery, reduces edema and shortens the time of reabsorption.

The tape has a life cycle of about 3/4 days during which it is possible to wash and perform all normal activities without any precautions. In fact, it is precisely during movement that the kinesiotape is most effective. Normally with one or two applications, the problem is completely solved.
