Colorful Kinesio Tape

RSS

If you have noticed more stripes and colors on athletes, chances are kinesio taping is to blame. The popularity of taping has grown in the last decade and the 2012 London Olympics have made it a household name. But how does this stuff work and is it affective?

Kinesio tape is a thin and pliable tape that is placed on areas of your body that can be prone to over extending, the tapes job is to pull on your skin to remind you NOT to over extend. Some trainers also use the tape as a tool to help improve balance in athletes and to prevent excessive extending. The taping has even been used on animals to help prevent injuries.
