What are the benefits of Kinesio taping?
It helps to restore function by fixing damaged connections between the skin and the muscles, joints, and tendons below. It helps to reset the circuitry in the affected part of the body. As a result, muscle strength and movement increase.
It also works by preventing pain receptors from reaching the brain. The muscles in the affected region will relax and the risk of spasms will decrease dramatically if these pain signals are not received.
Pressure restricts blood flow and movement in the affected region, but when the pain is relieved, blood flow and movement are restored.
There are many reasons why Kinesio taping may be useful to you in your healing journey! These include, but are not limited to:
Management of scar tissue
Healing from trauma can cause a thick band of scar tissue to develop around the affected area, which can obstruct movement signals.
After an accident, surgery, or other types of trauma, kinesio taping is a pretty normal procedure.
It can stretch your scar tissue, making movement signals more easily communicated and therefore increasing your mobility.
Some conditions may make it difficult for joints to stay in place.
It can help stabilize and provide support for these joints, while still allowing them to move around their intended range of motion.
One of the most important benefits of Kinesio taping is the reduction of pressure.
The brain no longer receives painful messages from the affected area because pain receptors are suppressed, allowing the muscles to relax.
This allows for more mobility, quicker recovery, and a more relaxing treatment experience overall.
Kinesio taping helps to decrease swelling caused by surgery, injury, or overuse by limiting the pressure between the skin and the tissues underneath.
This allows any buildup of fluid to travel freely and promotes better movement of the affected area.
