Kinesio Taping a Solution for Sports Injuries

KT, or Kinesio taping is a medical solution for the sports injuries

KT, or Kinesio Taping, is a new eastern sports medical solution for treating sports injuries. It has become very important part in the functional fitness world. It is specially designed for Professional athletes, and Olympians. The sports injuries include sprains, shin splints, knee, shoulder, leg, ankle, wrist elbow pain, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, hamstring strain, achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow etc. It not only treats these injuries but it is also very helpful in preventing such injuries.

KT tape is a strong and elastic tape which is applied on the skin for the treatment of the pain or inflammation of the muscles and joints. The tape does not have any medicine on it for relieving the pain but it is really very effective treatment and provides quick relief. It is just a tape which sticks on the skin and works by giving stability and supports to the injured muscles or painful joints. It provides quick recovery for the injury. The tape is very comfortable in use. It is very thin and light in weight. Its thickness is almost the same as the human skin is. Its elasticity helps in the free movement. KT tape is made of cotton material allowing the skin to breathe. It also allows the release of moisture.

The KT tape is very easy to use. It is available in strips which is already precut. But there are some KT tapes which are not cut in the strips. You have to cut it before application. The precut strips are very convenient and help in the speedy application. Although the adhesive used in the KT tapes is slightly different but all are latex free and cause no allergic reactions. Everyone can use it without any fear. The adhesive is the main feature of the tape. It is the one which reduces the pressure on the patellar tendon. It does by pulling up the skin thus allowing the more circulation of the blood towards the affected area.

As it increases the flow of blood so it results in the speedy healing. It comes in different colors which also look like a fashion statement. Some people think that the different colors of the tape affect the functionality of the tape but it does not happen like this at all. The colors do not affect its functions. Although the application method of the KT tape has been used by healthcare professionals such as orthopedics, chiropractors, physical therapists and physical trainers but it is easy and can be used at home. It can be applied on knees, ankles, shoulders, neck, feet, arms, hands, wrists etc.

It provides 24 hour relief and could be used in water as it is a water proof tape. You can use it during your bath, swimming, and also during exercise. But you must apply the tape almost two hours before the exercise and while applying, make sure the skin is dry and clean and the ends of the tapes are not stretched because if the ends will be stretched then the tape may be pulled off. If the tape is to be used on the joints then it is very important to bend the joint before applying to avoid pulling off the tape. After the application you must rub the tape because the rubbing activates the adhesive. Therefore if you are suffering from any pain which is not cured by different treatments you must try using KT tape.
