Looking forward to the Kinesio taping course this weekend.
In case you were wondering what that coloured tape was on some of the swimmers at the European Championships and on the athletes in Barcelona or Crystal Palace last week, it’s a unique method of taping using a more flexible tape, developed by Dr Kenzo Kane in japan 25 years ago.
Kinesio taping has many benefits
- Speed up recovery time from training or injury by improving fluid drainage
- Supports injured joints and muscles without restricting movement
- Relaxes muscles
You don’t need to be a sports person to benefit from Kinesio taping. Osteopath West will incorporate kinesio taping into the osteopathic and sport injury rehabilitation treatments that they already offer.
