Kinesio Taping (also Kinesiology Tape) is a specialized form of elastic therapeutic tape with an acrylic adhesive that offers support and stability to joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It essentially mimics the skin and can be used to support muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. It is effective in treating many physical disorders and used as preventative maintenance. When used to treat athletic injuries, it can allow an athlete to continue to participate in his or her sport, while augmenting treatment.
