Kinesio tape was developed in an effort to decrease pain, decrease edema (swelling), assist muscle function and ultimately improve joint function. It was designed to simulate human skin in thickness and weight. In addition, it has an elastic component that allows it to stretch 30% to 40% beyond its original length. Based upon years of clinical use, kinesiology tape is specifically applied to the patient based upon their needs after evaluation. The findings of the clinical assessment dictate the specifics of the kinesiology tape application as well as indicate if other treatments or modalities are needed. Kinesiology tape can be applied in many different ways and has proven to be effective in treating a wide variety of issues.
