In 2008 Kinesio tape hit the mainstream as the beach volleyball players rocked the colorful strips all over the sand. We see professional athletes wearing it all of the time but what does it actually do? Is it something that can help me as well? Do I need to be an athlete to use it?

You don’t need to be an athlete to experience the feeling of sore and tense muscles. Millions of Americans suffer from pain and stiffness! All too often poor posture and muscle overuse is the underlying cause of these symptoms. K-tape can be an effective tool in relieving sensitivity and decreasing inflammation in the strained or injured site. By adhering to the skin and applying pressure to the affected tissue, it assists weak muscles in functioning efficiently while also cueing over active muscles to relax in order to decrease pain, cramping and fatigue.
