When you sustain an injury to the body, your body’s natural response is to send a whole lot of lymphatic fluid to the area in order to begin the healing process. This lymphatic fluid build-up causes inflammation and swelling of the injured area which puts undue pressure on your muscles and soft tissues thus causing pain and discomfort.
When KT Tape Kinesiology tape is applied correctly, the idea is that it lifts the skin and reduces pressure on the underlying layers of tissue. This allows the lymphatic fluid to move easily between your tissues and eventually drain adequately thus reducing pain and discomfort. KT Tape is also believed to provide significant support for injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments such as ankle sprains when applied correctly so that they do not over-stretch or over-contract while healing. In addition, the kinesiology tape also helps with proprioception or overall body awareness to the healing of the affected area and eventually prevent further injury.
