is a method of applying special elastic cotton strips to the skin surface with a certain degree of tension. Kinesiology taping improves trophic tissue and blood circulation, eliminates pain and swelling, and restores the natural activity of joints, muscles and tendons. This technique allows to tone or relax various parts of the body. And according to the mechanism of action, kinesio taping resembles a 24-hour massage.
Kinesiology taping is used in:
⁃ sports medicine;
⁃ traumatology and orthopedics (shoulder instability, rib injuries, muscle strain, sprain, anterior cruciate ligament injury, knee bursitis, etc.);
⁃ podiatry (damage to the ligaments of the foot, foot deformity, bunion, heel spur, valgus of the feet, inflammation of the periosteum, etc.);
⁃ neurology (intercostal neuralgia, neuritis of the facial nerve, trigeminal neuralgia, torticollis, sciatica, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, rehabilitation of post-stroke patients, etc.);
⁃ pediatrics (infant colic, umbilical hernia, allergic rhinitis, equinus foot, bronchitis, etc.);
⁃ during pregnancy and in the postpartum period (removal of puffiness, abdominal support, unloading of the lumbosacral spine, toning of the transverse abdominal muscles, lifting of breast tissue, and also taping after cesarean section to enhance the process of tissue regeneration in the area of the postoperative scar).
