Kinesiology taping – a gentle approach to pain management
Kinesiology Taping, also known as K Taping is a less aggressive approach to pain Management and Resolution. Taping and Strapping are frequently seen as interchangeable in conversation, but there is a significant difference between the two techniques.
Sports Strapping uses rigid tape to support joints and prevent injury during sport – the focus with strapping is to stabilise a joint and restrict the available Range of Motion (ROM) so that the likelihood of injury is reduced.
Kinesiology Taping uses elastic tape that is very flexible and comfortable to wear – the focus with K Tape is to disrupt the pain receptors in the skin, allowing your body to function with reduced pain sensation while your body repairs the condition. K Tape can be applied to almost any region of the body, and appropriate tape position has shown significant success in relieving tension headaches! Please talk to us about this if you would like to understand more.
