Kinesio Taping

Kinesio taping is a commonly used technique to treat areas of pain, improve athletic performance and enhance recovery. The “stretchy” tape is applied with varying degrees of tension to create a microscopic lift under the skin. This allows for increased blood flow to certain areas, as well as removal of inflammatory factors more quickly. When applied correctly, kinesio tape can assist in muscle activation, reduce the tension in a muscle, or eliminate swelling. At Reneu, kinesio tape is used to prolong the effects of manual therapy and assist in recovery.
