Over the years I have used Kensio-Tape (K-Tape) successfully to help my athletic patients as well as many of the players I have coached. From weekend warriors to professionals, they have reaped the benefits of K-Tape. At some point, I began to use this on all my patients which may benefit whether they are competing or not. If you’ve watched a basketball, tennis, volleyball or even competitive diving, you’ve probably seen it: strips of colorful tape splayed in patterns across shoulders, knees, backs, and abs. That’s kinesiology tape: a therapeutic tape that’s applied strategically to the body to provide support, lessen pain, reduce swelling, and most importantly provide neural feedback to the joint to improve performance.
