Benefits of Kinesiology Tape for Sports Injuries
Kinesiology tape is a flexible and sticky tape that is applied in a certain pattern around your injured area. For example, if you are struggling with a sprained ankle, Dr. Earle sets the strips of tape to support the joint while also allowing for natural movement. Kinesiology tape stretches which allows your mobility, but it is also tight to support injured muscles and joints. The tape naturally increases blood flow to the area due to the compression and tension on the skin. This increase in circulation helps to eliminate inflammation by removing toxins from the injured area. It also brings in healing nutrients that cells need to repair the damaged tissues. Another way Kinesiology tape achieves this reduced inflammation is through a lifting of the skin. The tape elevates the skin away from the injured muscle or joint which allows for an increased space for swelling to recede. The tape can be worn for approximately three days and you can also get it wet so you are able to swim or shower as needed. Dr. Earle monitors your progress and reapplies the tape when required until your injury and pain have reduced.
When your injury is supported with Kinesiology tape, you experience fewer symptoms. Your pain decreases, swelling and inflammation disappear and you feel a restored mobility. All of this occurs without the use of pain-relieving medications. Kinesiology tape is a natural way to heal from a sports injury or other personal injury. You do not have to be an athlete to use Kinesiology tape. It also helps reduce symptoms from conditions such as fibromyalgia or from injuries such as a slip and fall or overuse.
