LEAVE THE KINESIOLOGY TAPING TO THE SPECIALISTS
Our medical staff knows the basic principals and application methods as well as the philosophy behind K-Active tape. We provide taping at home visits and as part of our medical services.
WHAT IS KINESIOTAPE?
Kinesiology tape is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. It can be used in the sporting, rehabilitation and preventative medicine fields. The tape is used to support the body during its healing process. This is achieved by placing tape that imitates the skin’s characteristics in specific locations. It is important to ensure the correct movement of the muscles and joints when taping.
If you tape yourself, your hand might not reach the right places. You are also inevitably putting stress on your muscles with every movement. And thus the tape may not support you as well as it should. Turning to a good specialist resolves those issues.
Complicated support techniques
More complicated problems require better knowledge of anatomy and physiology. Cutting the tape is also a skill in and of itself. These are situations that require the hand of a qualified professional.
If it’s your first time, it’s not a good idea to try taping by yourself. Incorrectly placed tape is ineffective. Ask a specialist for specific instructions.
