CURIOUS ABOUT KINESIOLOGY TAPING? CAN SPORTS TAPING HELP YOU WITH INJURY?

The brightly coloured tape sometimes seen on athletes or sports people is kinesiology tape, sometimes known as sports tape.

But can kinesiology tape really help with injuries - or is it just a colourful waste of time and money? 

AT STATE 11 SOFT TISSUE THERAPY IN SPALDING, WE'RE TRAINED IN KINESIOLOGY TAPING FOR INJURY

Kinesiology taping is often seen in athletics but can provide support and pain relief for anyone with an injury. 

It works by lifting the skin - and the tissues underneath - fractionally, allowing for inflammation whilst also providing a different neurological input to the brain about the painful area. 

If all that sounds a bit technical, in short it means that the joint or muscle that hurts feels less painful and more supported, so that you can move more freely. 

Many people can use tape instead of bulky knee, ankle or wrist braces that often feel uncomfortable and restrict movements to such an extent that muscle wastage can occur.

Kinesiology taping is easy to do and at State 11, we believe in helping our clients become self-sufficient in managing their own health. 

We recommend Sport Tape (use this link and the discount code VICTORIA10 for 10% off your first order),

So, should you have a long term condition that taping helps with, we'll show you how to use tape at home so that you don't need to see us as much!

SPORTS TAPING AT STATE 11 IN SPALDING

At State 11, we've been trained by RockTape in the proper use of taping for injury and pain. RockTape were one of the companies that popularised the use of taping, and their tape was frequently seen on world-beating athletes. 

However, technology moves on, and we find that SportTape - a UK company - produces better quality tape. 

The tape is competitively priced, lasts well even after showering and doesn't stiffen or tighten when wet, which means that it's more comfortable and supportive for days longer than we found RockTape to be. 

SportTape is difficult to find on the high street, but it can be bought directly on line, either from Amazon or SportTape themselves - use this link and the discount code VICTORIA10 for 10% off your first order.
