How Does Kinesio Taping Work?
Taping the body triggers proprioceptors or sensory receptors, which provide information regarding the place of the human body and its components in space at a particular moment in time. If these get turned on, a message goes to the mind to enhance muscle function and in return, reduce the amount of pain you're experiencing.
When your therapist measures, cuts and puts the tape onto your body. The tape can be worn for up to a week. There is no limit to the range of movement, and it will not impact your daily life. The Kinesio tape is designed to be watertight and friction-resistant.
