The kinesio taping method has been widely adopted in Physiotherapy and Sports applications and
received worldwide attention after top ranking athletes appeared in important competitions with
kinesio tape applied to their bodies. It involves applying a special stretchable tape with elastic properties
over or around specific muscles or joints. Depending on the way it is applied, it can be used to assist or
support specific muscle and ligament functions or prevent over-contraction. It is also thought to
improve micro-circulation and lymph drainage by gradually decompressing the area over which it is
applied and to improve muscular function by providing increased proprioception, effectively “re-
educating” the treated muscle.
