K-Tape is an elastic tape that is water resistant, breathable and can be worn up to 7 days. K-Tape has 2 effects: 1) it stimulates blood flow and lymph flow to aid in the healing process and 2) it stimulates skin receptors to reduce pain and help the body sense position and movement. K-Taping can be used in the treatment of a variety of conditions such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, ligament sprains and muscle strains.
Athletic taping may be used to provide pain-relief, support and compression for acute injuries (e.g. ankle sprain, tendon injury) or to provide support and sensory input for hypermobile joints (e.g. unstable ankle or knee). Athletes may come to Physiomoves for taping of a joint(s) prior to a game or competition.
