How Does Kinesiology Taping Work?
Kinesiology taping makes a lift that unloads the underlying tissues. Decompressing those tissues can alter the signals going to the brain, which lead to pain relief. This also helps in supporting structures, aiding with postural deficits, and assisting with lymphatic drainage when applied properly. Our FYZICAL Old Cherokee staff are trained in different techniques and uses of kinesotape.
