Kinesio taping in Rovaniemi
Kenso Kaze, a Japanese father of kinesio taping, found in the 1970s that moving the skin affects the range of motion and pain in the joints. To move the skin, he developed an extensible tape.
Kinesio taping is usually used to relieve pain as well as to increase mobility and muscle strength. Kinesio taping can be used to support the body’s own healing process through the circulatory, lymphatic system and neurophysiology. Kinesio taping can be used to increase joint mobility, guide the joint to function in mechanically correct ways, or add additional support to the joint if necessary.
