Kinesio Tape: Less Pain, More Performance.

At Peak Sports And Spine Centre we may recommend the use of Kinesio Tape in conjunction with other treatment techniques. The Kinesio Taping Method is applied over muscles, helping reduce pain and inflammation during sporting activities. The technique also supports muscles to function properly and relaxes tired and overused muscles, whether from sporting activities or trauma (e.g. surgery, bruising etc).

Kinesio Taping is a technique that provides support and stability to joints and muscles without hindering blood circulation or the full range of motion of muscle on which the tape is attached to. It is also used for preventive maintenance purposes, preventing edema (swelling), and treating muscle and joint pain.

Kinesio Tape is made from a hypoallergenic acrylic glue, which is manufactured to have the same weight, thickness and elasticity of the skin, allowing it to integrate with the body’s sensory system.
