We stock a wide range of kinaesthetic tape which can be used for a multitude of purposes, such as shin splints, knee pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow – and that only scrapes the surface.
Kinesiology taping was invented in the 1970s by Japanese chiropractor, Dr. Kenzo Kase. His idea was to find a simple product which would provide compression to muscles and joints which would not only promote healing but wouldn’t restrict movement. This meant that athletes, sportsmen and women and gym enthusiasts could continue their daily routines without hindrance. It is used regularly by such sporting celebrities as David Beckham and Serena Williams.
