Several weeks ago I started using Kinesio Tape in different cases and the results overall have been really satisfactory. Being a technique somewhat unknown here in the West, and even more so in the field in which I work, not athletes most, I have detected several doubts regarding the issue I would like to clear. What is Kinesio Tape? As I explained in Kinesio Tape, a pleasant surprise, Kinesio Tape is a method of bandage born four decades ago in Japan and Korea. The combination between the physical characteristics of the own band and application technique that we use, as well as the tension of the band prior to their placement, will be decisive in achieving the desired results. Txema Aguirre, Grandmaster, sums it up in an only number: 185. With a single bandage and dressing eight techniques we got five effects. A single bandage.
How are bands of Kinesio Tape? The band of Kinesio Tape is characterized by: 1. its elasticity: elastic lengthwise, but rigid Crossways, allows us addressing the tension that we want to implement in the dressing area. A great advantage with respect to the rest of bandages, either fully rigid (frozen), either totally elastic (compressive). On the other hand, with Kinesio Tape we simply tonificamos, relax or correct forces in the required direction, giving full freedom to the rest of forces acting on the area of application. 2 Material: 100% cotton, breathable, can get wet and usually does not cause allergic reactions, as well as band, medical use Cyanocrilato glue. 3.
Your comfort: the band mimics both the thickness and weight of a person’s skin, so take it is really comfortable. In most applications, the sensitive effect that we perceive is only one: indifference. We should not notice the band. 4. Its durability: built to last between four and eight days, taking into account two factors.
