Most think of Kinesio® Tape as a treatment strictly for athletes, but that’s a misconception. More than 85% of Kinesio® Taping applications are designed with general patient populations in mind.
Kinesio Taping® design in combination with the proper evaluation of clinical conditions and unique application techniques comprise the Kinesio Taping® Method. Dr. Kenzo Kase, inventor of the method and the tape, relied on his chiropractic experience to understand the need for high-quality patient assessments before treatments to develop individualized patient goals.
Today, the method is used by physical therapists, occupational therapists, certified athletic trainers, massage therapists, chiropractors, doctors, nurses and acupuncturists around the world to treat everyday aches, pains and medical conditions
