Fundamental to the principle of Kinesiology Taping are the
techniques used in the application of tape to the skin.
There are several methods and techniques used in the Taping Method,
but the principle of raising the skin from the underlying fascia
appears to be critical in the effectiveness of the tape in
improving and relieving many medial conditions.
In the muscle techniques, for example Kinesiology Tape, are applied
over an area of stretched muscle. When the muscle relaxes, the tape
forms convulsions, or wrinkles. This results in the skin pulling
away from the underlying fascia, and in so doing, creating greater
space for lymphatic drainage and blood perfusion, and taking
pressure off the pain receptors.
Pain relief may also be effected by activation of the Endogenous
Analgestic System. The adhesion of the Kinesiology Tape to the skin
and the consequent convulsions appear to activate analgesia at the
spine level by way of the thick myelinated A-B fibres, and
supraspinally through inhibition of efferent neurons of the
Types of Application:
Results in better movement, and normalisation of muscle tone
Joints and fascia can be finely adjusted and with this correction
of the muscles can be involved.
Kinesiology tape can be used to limit joint movement when required.
This technique can be quite effective in the anterior instability
