kinesio taping

Think twice before you grab that roll of kinesiology tape. Are you making matters worse?
I often hear a whole load of nonsense, misinformation, and misconceptions about kinesiology tape and what it does.
When it comes to what athletes do and what will help them perform better, I look to the science.
Yes, that crazy colored tape you see on athletes has many practical uses - rehab, injury prevention, pain prevention, and a competitive edge, just to start.
Kenzo Kase, a Japanese chiropractor and acupuncturist, designed Kinesio tape back in 1979. Maybe you've tried it, but when put to the test by scientists, does it really work?
Kinesiology taping first began as a way to promote healing from injury, but has since evolved to become a performance enhancing technique.
