Kinesio Taping: What is it and how does it work?

Ever wondered what this colorful tape does? Kinesiotaping is a way in which physical therapists can help to minimize pain, discomfort, and even swelling during everyday activities or sports. Depending on where the injury is and what makes it worse or better, your therapist can determine how to place the tape so to help you feel most comfortable throughout the day. The material of the tape is gentle enough that you can wear it for days but designed and implemented to make a real difference.
