Kinesio Taping® "Something better than any laser, wrap, or electric massager.…The Tape. It is a special hot-pink athletic tape that came from Japan and seemed to have special powers. Every morning before the stage, they would tape us all up, different parts of our bodies...George's back, Chechu's knees. Sometimes we'd be so wrapped up in hot-pink tape that we'd look like dolls, a bunch of broken dolls. But the next day the pain disappeared--it was gone." by Lance Armstrong
Every Second Counts
Kinesio Taping® has gained in popularity since its extensive use by the women's volleyball team in the 2008 simmer Olympics in Beijing.
It is effectively used for treatment of muscle strains, including athletic injury, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, ilitibial band syndrome, shin splints, postural problems and many other musculoskeletal disorders. It is particularly helpful for endurance athletes. Kinesio Taping® has also been found to be very helpful in treating the extreme swelling known as lymphedema.
