Kinesio tape is a thin, stretchable tape applied to the body that is designed to help with injury prevention and treatment. The primary goal of kinesio taping is to help improve circulation to the area, while also strategically pulling on certain muscles to relieve pressure on the injury.

For this form of treatment to be at its most effective, it should be applied by a qualified professional, such as a physical therapist.

Kinesio taping from a qualified physical therapist

By being lightweight and single use, Kinesio taping is particularly appealing to athletes and active people in general. However, even when applied expertly, kinesio taping is no substitute for proper physical therapy. This is why it is critical to be fully evaluated and cleared for physical activity by a professional before using kinesio tape in your favorite sport or athletic pursuit.

Here are some typical steps that a physical therapist may use to determine if kinesio taping is right for you:

  • Review your medical and treatment history
  • Look at your posture and movement
  • Ask you about your chosen activity and your intensity level
  • Perform a hands-on examination to identify painful and tender spots

From there, a determination can be made about kinesio taping as well as other potential treatment options that can help you develop better mechanics, a stronger body and better flexibility to recover from injuries and prevent new ones from developing.
