Kinesio Taping the body for specific motions can influence the body’s awareness and can also aid in motion direction. The healing properties of Kinesio Tape lifts the skin and allows blood vessels and lymphatic systems more space for fluid transport. With swelling, an area can become tight and filled with fluid. The tape helps lift the skin and separate the different layers of the skin to allow for more room underneath. Within the skin are pain receptors called mechanoreceptors. This congestion underneath the skin creates pain because the receptors are congested. The Kinesio Tape application can actually lift the different layers of skin to decrease the swelling, decrease inflammation, and even decrease the patient’s pain. The muscle groups and joints that benefit the most from using Kinesio Taping are the neck, lower back, shoulders, knees, and ankles.
