This past Olympics brought kinesiology tape into the public eye. It is a cloth tape that can be worn for several days, even while exercising and it is applied in a manner that is specific to the area of the body and the condition.
The benefits of kinesiology tape are numerous. It supports joints, but is not so stiff as to inhibit motion. It can reduce swelling and pain while allowing the body to heal itself.
Kinesiology tape can help with ankle sprains, knee pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis and so much more.
