PERSONAL BEST SERVICES
Kinesiology, or K-tape has seen a huge surge in it’s use over the last decade, with more and more professional athletes recognising it’s benefits. K- tape can be used to treat a variety of athletic injuries and physical disorders, as well as help improve performance and recovery rates.
K-Tape is a thin, stretchy, elastic cotton strip with an acrylic adhesive. It is almost identical to human skin in both thickness and elasticity, which allows the tape to be worn without binding, constricting or restriction of movement. Waves of adhesive on the back of the tape allow the body’s surface structures to be lifted away from inflammation, allowing the body to more effectively channel lymph and blood, and therefore speed up the healing process. The tape can also be used to support weak muscles or joints, holding them in a more comfortable position, allowing the wearer to move better and be able to progress further in prescribed exercise programs, again helping to speed up the healing process.
At Personal Best Sports Therapy, we can apply k-tape, we can supply k-tape and we can show you the best methods for self-application, so you can manage your own return to sport. Make an appointment today to discuss how K-tape may be able to help you reach your Personal Best.
