Kinesio taping is the fastest growing taping technique in the world. You will see athletes, footballers, golfers and cyclists all wearing the tape.
At Lisburn Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic, all our Physiotherapists are qualified in applying Kinesio Tape and over the past years since using the technique have seen just incredible results with immediate effect.
The Kinesio Taping technique was developed by Dr. Kenzo Kase in Japan over 25 yrs ago. Dr. Kase had been searching for a sports taping method to assist in the healing of traumatised tissue. He found that standard taping techniques, such as athletic taping and strapping, provided muscle and joint support, however, they reduced range of motion, did not support the fascia and, in many cases, inhibited the actual healing process of traumatised tissue.
Kinesio Taping’s key differentiator is its ability to aid the lymphatic and muscle systems, while supporting joints and muscles.
